Women tell, they tell themselves, they are told.
Two months after the inauguration of the exhibition “Myths, Heroines and Rebels”, hosted in Noto, in the eighteenth-century Jesuit College-Convitto delle Arti in Corso Vittorio Emanuele, the first budgets are drawn up.

From 24 April, the day of the opening, to 30 June, there were 7,500 admissions.
Starting from July 1st and until next September 30th, the opening (fixed at 10 am) is extended until 11 pm every day, with continuous opening hours.
The cost of the ticket is 12 euros for the whole and 9 euros for the reduced (for over 65, residents, groups and young people up to 25 years).
For schools the ticket is 4 euros.

An intriguing, evocative and varied journey into the world of women through the centuries takes shape and unfolds between the mighty walls of the former Jesuit College.
Extraordinary, adventurous, irreducible and passionate women, expression of different worlds and times, but united by tenacity, restlessness, obstinacy, disobedience, rebellion and resourcefulness.

Visitors will find themselves in front of portraits of women who, with their civil commitment, in the world of art and literature, have played a decisive role and contributed to writing important pages of history.

“Myths, Heroines and Rebels, between Caravaggio, Artemisia Gentileschi and Tamara de Lempicka” is produced and organized by Gianni Filippini and Florinda Vicari.
Curators of the exhibition are Pierluigi Carofano and Tamara Cini.
Also on display is Caravaggio’s La Maddalena Addolorata, with an unpublished document from the Rome State Archives that sheds new light on the work.
The exhibition will remain open until 23 October next.
