In Triennale Milano, in the evening of Wednesday 17th January 2024, in the presence of the authors Anty Pansera and Mariateresa Chirico, was presented  “Athena. Le presenze femminili delle Biennali/Triennali di Monza/Milano. 1923–1940”: the volume, in bookstores starting 31th January, also consists of an iconographic apparatus that is the result of very interesting archival research. Anty Pansera, a design historian and critic, “Compasso d'Oro alla Carriera”, and Mariateresa Chirico, a researcher of 20th-century art history, with a focus on the vicissitudes of the decorative arts, with their research guide the reader through the exhibition halls of the Monza Biennials and Milan Triennials, dwelling on the presences of women. The reference are those women who, as artisans, painters, sculptors, and architects offered their contributions, while at the same time giving an account of a reality of schools, private institutions, and companies that in various capacities engaged throughout the country to enhance women's knowledge, often led by visionary women themselves. In this book, an attempt has been made, as far as possible, to restore in all its richness what these women bequeathed.
