Presentation of the book “L’androgino tra noi” (2015, Ediesse)
The androgyne is one of the archetypes that has shaped the history of humanity; this book investigates the current representation of a myth that has crossed diverse centuries and cultures.

She is active in the feminist movement in Milan and is currently part of the Governing Council of the Casa delle donne (Women’s House) of Milan.
