Violence against women: an exhibition in Rome

30 December 2021

Until March 13, showing at the Museum of Rome, Palazzo Braschi is Signs, a photographic and educational exhibition on the theme of violence against women, aimed primarily at boys and girls. The curators are Simona Ghizzoni and Ilaria Magliocchetti Lombi, who have transformed the testimonies of certain victims into images and texts.

Through the mediation of self-portraits, Simona Ghizzoni relived the stories she heard, retracing her experiences; Ilaria Magliocchetti Lombi, on the other hand, focused on the places, objects and familiar spaces where acts of violence have taken place.

The exhibition was organized by the “Cortile dei Gentili” and the FemalConsult of the Pontifical Council for Culture in collaboration with the anti-violence center, Lilith of Latina.
