Did women have a Renaissance?
The Museo petrarchesco piccolomineo replies to this question with the rare sixteenth-century printed editions of the "Hortis" Civic Library - all described in the on-line catalogue and with some paintings, engravings, sculptures and costumes, expressions of femininity of the 16th and 17th century, from museums in Friuli Venezia Giulia. 

The exhibition is conceived and curated by Maiko Favaro, who with this scientific work completes in Trieste the project with which he won the "Marie Skłodowska-Curie" fellowship of the European Commission in 2015 (Horizon 2020 programme). The preparation of the exhibition integrates the research activity in which he has been engaged for two years at the "Freie Universität" in Berlin.
