Ten Inspirational Italian Women to Celebrate International Women’s Day

In honor of International Women’s Day, or Festa della donna, Italy Magazine wants to celebrate Italian women who have inspired and continue to inspire us as role models. 

International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. In that spirit, we have selected ten Italian women of the past and present who, through their lives and accomplishments, have made (or changed) history in Italy, and even abroad.
