Donne resistenti: Natalia Ginzburg & Ada Gobetti

Natalia GinzburgShort post to warmly encourage everyone who – like me till a couple of months ago (shame!) – hasn’t read yet Natalia Ginzburg’s Lessico famigliare and Ada Gobetti’s Diario partigiano to do so, for not only they are literary masterpieces, but also enduring testimonials of truly ‘resistant’ women: with Ginzburg (1916-1991) surviving World War II and the Shoah yet having her husband, the scholar and antifascist Leone Ginzburg (1909-1944) murdered by the Nazis, while Gobetti (1902-1968) – whose husband, the philosopher and politician Piero Gobetti (1901-1926) had died as result of fascist’s assaults – joined the Italian RAda Gobetti e Paoloesistance movement, actively participating in it with her 18 years old son Paolo. Wonderful books (both available at the UvA-Library: Ginzburg and Gobetti), outstanding women! PhotosGinzburg’s and Gobetti’s (with son Paolo) – from the website of the Italian Rai Radio 3.
