Christine e la città delle dame

The work is finished. The city is now ready: beautiful, strong and populated. All written. Clear. Airy. Free. Fair. And well defended. Christine feels less alone among all these stories. "It was enough to look for them, the women's stories. Of the Amazons and Cassandra, Dido and Sappho, Penelope, the Virgin Mary and many others," she says, putting down her pen. "It was enough to tell them." Silvia Ballestra tells Christine de Pizan, the first professional writer of history, to today's children in this volume illustrated by Rita Petruccioli and published in the new Celacanto series, which Laterza has designed to talk about history without losing the taste for storytelling.
