Le donne artiste alla Biennale d’arte di Venezia
Le scultrici e le prime edizioni (1895-1912)
This study on the theme of female participation at Venice Biennale from 1895 to 1995 contains data that allow us to outline the history of their participation, also in comparison of the male one. In order to limit the number of the analised artists and in order to carry out a more in-depth analysis, the first ten editions of Venice Biennale (1895-1912) were chosen: for this reason, the sculpture sector was also preferred as case study. A specific situation of the Venetian exhibition has been discovered. The artistic training of some sculptors and the study of art history made it possible to understand the role of women.
