Special appointment with the International Center for Writers of Calabria, on Thursday October 11th, in the Conference Room, at 5.30 pm, to inaugurate the series of meetings on “Women and the war in the theater”, by the president of the Scientific Committee of the CIS, the philologist Paola Radici Colace, professor at the University of Messina.
The conference, with the support of video projections, will focus on the theme: “Iphigenia, the first victim of a not yet begun war. From Euripides to Ritsos“. Will speak: the director Malacrino and the president of CIS, Loreley Rosita Borruto.
The International Center for Writers of Calabria confirms itself as a valuable partner of the MArRC in the project for the enhancement of the museum heritage and of the territory, by an interdisciplinary methodology for a widespread culture service.
“If it is true that in any society women go to war, it is also true that they weep for a great deal of anguish. The tears of mothers, widows and orphans fall equally between vanquished and victorious, because all wars have victims, and on both sides”, Radici Colace says. In this relationship between the feminine and the war, however, “the history of Iphigenia is singular, in a way that remains an unicum“, she explains. In fact, Iphigenia is the first victim of a war that has not yet been fought.
