Università degli Studi di Bari Aldo Moro, Dipartimento di Scienze Politiche, Bari, Italy
Journey into the feminine of Bari, from Neolithic Venuses to Goddesses, Queens, Witches, Madonnas.
A dive into the Archaeological Museum of Santa Scolastica, in a path with an attentive gaze on the feminine, from the Venuses of the Neolithic to the Peucetian representations, to jewels, to the representations of love. From the treatises of Aeschylus to the ghosts of Euripides, where each vase tells a story, a moment of life, of death, of the myth, up to touching the unconscious and the uncontrollable with the Erinyes, the Gorgons, the Masciare.
The feminine that becomes power and culture with the abbesses and then with the architects of the Bari Renaissance, the marvelous and tormented Isabella of Aragon and Bona Sforza, without whom there would be no city as we still live it now and there would not be much of the character of the people of Bari.
After all, to save the city from the Moors first and from the storms after, the Madonnas guarding the walls and the waves, passing through enchanted palaces between lights and shadows and squares with hidden corners that reveal secrets.
