Our mission is to make a significant contribution to the creation of a higher level of consciousness regarding the cultural and social history of Southern Italy, and of Salento in particular, without adhering to stereotypes or simplifications.

This collection is made exceptional by the public writings of Salento Femminile and by the happen-chance discoveries we’ve made in relation to the context in which these pieces were written; a context dominated at length by the patriarcal culture and widespread illiteracy of the region.

In the heart of Salento and the rural South, known largely to be archaic and immobile, these writings allow us to develop a nuanced understanding of an uncommon space of progressive change that was created by women.
