Frida Kahlo in the street-art tribute to resilient women in Naples, Italy

21 March 2024

The "Resilient Women's Alley" is born with the artists Trisha Palma and Giulia Pagano - street artists and graphics respectively - who enriched the walls of the "Vicoletto Donna Regina" with portraits of great female personalities, examples of struggle and courage. A small and precious open-air museum which, as Davide D'Errico, founder of the initiative, underlined, «is a cry of hope and a demonstration of the great strength of Naples, which despite everything continues to fight, dream, resist».

A wonderful project that aims to improve the urban fabric, born right in the heart of the city, in a female story of yesterday and today, as also confirmed by the signature of the two creators of the portraits. Culture continues to invade the walls of the Campania capital and the "Vicoletto della Regina" joins the other two already redeveloped: via Montesilvano and vico Buongiorno.

Among the women portrayed in this hall of fame, the intellectual and activist Michela Murgia, who died prematurely last August, the feminist icon par excellence of art, Frida Kahlo, the Nobel Prize winner for medicine Rita Levi Montalcini, Artemisia Gentileschi, the one who managed to make her way in a world where painters were not even allowed to attend academies and the journalist Matilde Serao, candidate for the Nobel for literature which she failed to obtain due to the lack of support from the fascist government. Precisely on the latter, Trisha Palma, the young writer originally from Scampia, stated that she "strongly wanted this personality, the first Italian woman to have founded a newspaper", the Corriere di Roma, an experience subsequently repeated with Il Mattino and Il Giorno.
