A fascinating visual, historical and critical journey that highlights, for the first time, the extraordinary and little known contribution of female Italian artists to the sector of reproduced images, from the seventeenth century to today. This volume covers the main cultural movements of the twentieth century, introducing us to artists with a double handicap: being women and working in an area considered 'minor'. Despite this, they have created images of extraordinary quality – in illustrating for advertisements and fashion, for comics and caricatures, calendars, postcards and labels – witnessing and underlining Italy’s history. While guiding us on this unprecedented journey, Paola Pallottino offers us access to her extraordinary personal archive. This is the result of a lifetime of research, consisting of hundreds of dossiers on illustrative artists, thousands of files, and over 10,000 sector publications, including books and magazines, collected in over forty years of research.
