An actress, a playwright, a feminist, a politician. Franca Rame was all of these things; a great, beautiful, and cultured woman capable of transforming the tragedy of the rape that had struck her into one of the most emotional theatrical monologues, ever. In the sixties, with her husband Dario Fo, she conquered the theatres of Milano with the "Compagnia Dario Fo-Franca Rame", where he worked as director and playwright and she, instead, as first actress and administrator. For Franca theatre and life formed an indissoluble unity in which the stage was always the same: the city of Milano.

HER PLACE OF THE HEART:

The Franca Rame Garden, in Adriano district - a splendid park to be lived to the full, as if it were a stage of daily life, art and culture that the city of Milano wanted to dedicate to one of the most important female voices that lived in the city; and Palazzina Liberty ("Liberty Palace") inside Vittorio Formentano Park, which hosts musical events and performances of free theatre during the year.

THE QUOTE:

"Today, at my age, I can say that I'm trying to finish the things in my life left unfinished, like a biography that I'm writing - let's say - so as not to leave anything empty. But what I would like to keep telling women, even after my death, is never to lose respect for themselves, to have dignity. Always. Thinking back on my life, I have never allowed myself to be disrespected".
