Among the great women of Milano it is impossible not to mention Alda Merini, the great poetess of Navigli born "on the 21st in spring", as she herself loved to write. Yes, because it was in Ripa di Porta Ticinese that Alda lived the last years of her life after her marriage to the poet Michele Pierri, with whom she lived in southern Italy, in Taranto. Still today, walking along the Milanese canals, with a little effort of imagination we can see her strolling with the inevitable cigarette between her lips and her string of pearls, ready to be caught by the inspiration of the muses. The author's life was not the easiest: she spent more than ten years of her life in a psychiatric hospital and only reached the true artistic consecration after death. Alda Merini was and still is a great example of cultural resilience for all women and it's to the female universe that the writer dedicated her most beautiful words in the famous lyric entitled Hymn to Women.
Let's discover this special ID of Alda Merini that we have written especially for you.
