" « E io ch’avea d’error la testa cinta,

dissi: "Maestro, che è quel ch’i’ odo?
e che gent’è che par nel duol sì vinta?".

Ed elli a me: "Questo misero modo
tegnon l’anime triste di coloro
che visser sanza ‘nfamia e sanza lodo.

Mischiate sono a quel cattivo coro
de li angeli che non furon ribelli
né fur fedeli a Dio, ma per sé fuoro.

Caccianli i ciel per non esser men belli,
né lo profondo inferno li riceve,
ch’alcuna gloria i rei avrebber d’elli".

E io: "Maestro, che è tanto greve
a lor che lamentar li fa sì forte?".
Rispuose: "Dicerolti molto breve.

Questi non hanno speranza di morte,
e la lor cieca vita è tanto bassa,
che ‘nvidïosi son d’ogne altra sorte.

Fama di loro il mondo esser non lassa;
misericordia e giustizia li sdegna:
non ragioniam di lor, ma guarda e passa". »

(Dante Alighieri, Inferno III, 31-51)

A surreal and dreamlike journey in the desires and hopes of any woman, the fairy-tale romance that can turn into a nightmare, the loneliness and despair in the absence of understanding or compassion….

Buffy Holfe in her characteristic irreverent way invites us to a complex reflection around the theme of violence against women with a dip in the subconscious: "indolent … who in his life never acts either in good or bad, without ever daring … without ever having an idea of their own, but merely to adapt and always stand up to that of the strongest … "
Many women have marked the history of the entire world with their works, their thinking and their tenacity … Cleopatra , Giovanna D’Arco , Maria Teresa D’Asburgo , Anna Maria Mozzoni , Marie Curie , Rita Levi Montalcini … all women who have made history at different times … all women who have fought for what they believed the conquest of important rights … all women who have been able to face the hostility and ignorance of the world that surrounded , demonstrating their "non-inferiority".
All of us have the means and the ability to improve and change harrowing situations and subtle inhumanity towards women … just do not ignore. "
