«Tutto ciò risponde alle mie irrequiete aspirazioni»
I viaggi di Alba Felter Sartori nella colonia italiana
Alba Felter Sartori travelled alone through different Italian colonies in Africa in the 1930s and her travelogue was informed by the fascist ideology. In this paper I argue that the travel becomes for her an occasion of empowerment, since it allows her to perform in ways that in her motherland were not permitted. The colony becomes, in her experience, an occasion to challenge gender rules and her identity. Of equal importance is the fact that writing turns into an opportunity for public acknowledgment.
