We strongly recommend anyone being in Italy during this season not to miss the chance to take part in the exhibitions and shows expressly organised for this event. Since listing all of these would be a hard job, we suggest you have a look at the MIBAC website to find out more on this topic, included each region programs and exhibitions in Tuscany Italy Besides that, we would like to point out to all our readers a particular event occurring this year, in the hope it could be a cue for a deeper discussion. In fact, all the world celebrates "The Women's Day" on March and along the Year 2008 , and even if nowadays it has become just a "commercial pretext" for increasing the world economy, its origins date back to past and less lucrative time! In present day society, many people, or better said, many women celebrate what is commonly referred to as "their feast" and know nothing of the historical event which it goes back to. Actually, it has its official beginnings on March 8th, 1908, that is exactly a century ago, when 129 women working in a textile manufacturing in New York were burnt alive while striking to protest against the terrible working conditions they were subjected to. At the beginning, the United States only used to celebrate this event as a commemoration of that tragic day, but then, thanks to the early 1900's feminist movements, it gained international interest, turning into the symbol of women struggles against violence and social, working discriminations. A date to be remembered then, which should awake not only our sense of smell "to the sound of mimosa", but also our human being conscience. And so, which event better than "Arte al Femminile: da Artemisia Gentileschi a Marina Abramovich" could commemorate the centenary of this date? This set of conferences and screenings promoted by the Culture Week and taking place at the institution Sestoidee, in Sesto Fiorentino (Florence), analyses and compares two important topics like Woman and Art, emphasizing once again all the troubles that women had to face to come out from old preconceptions, beliefs and injustices of a men-shaped world. They struggled to state their own capabilities and personalities, even if not always successfully. The institution Sestoidee thus offers us a path crossing woman art from the 16th century to the present day and trying to make its way through all the troubles and adversities that the commonly named "the weaker sex" had to face throughout centuries. Currently we seem to have "evolved" too much to accept words such as "discrimination and gender violence"; actually, there are still plenty of women undergoing physical, psychological and social violences who need help and comprehension. To this end, we would like to point out an Italian association which has been created for protecting women and their rights. To learn more on the promotions of events and exhibitions, and to have a look on what still happens all over the world (that is oppressions, injustices, brutalities, somewhere even legalized, as in Iran, occurring both in the well known "developed countries" and "developing countries"),
