Rename, Reclaim: Women in Italian Streets

On Sunday, March 15 at 11am at the Caffe Letterario Le Murate in Florence, SACI Alumna and former teaching assistant, Michelle Tarnopolsky and Molly McIlwrath are presenting a short documentary, with new English subtitles that they translated.

Presenting together with them are Alice Trippi of the Rete 13 Febbraio women’s network of Pistoia, whose ‘Toponomastica Femminile’ project to name three parks after three women is featured in the film, and Lorella Zanardo, author/director of Il Corpo delle Donne and a major children’s media literacy advocate and activist.

The event will be in English and in Italian. The film is incredibly inspiring and will surely spark some interesting conversation.
