Witches, heretics, criminals: where have the ancient rebellious females of the Alps and forests of Europe gone?

April 5 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Witches, heretics, criminals: where have the ancient rebellious females of the Alps and forests of Europe gone? Burn at the stake, of course; torn to pieces on scaffolds, among curious and excited city people; ridiculed by intellectuals; and forgotten, above all. The forest, freed from its spell, could be exploited according to modern technology: roads plowed through it, and the deforested straight lines penetrated into the thickest of trees. The destruction of the environment began, and the “people of the woods” lost the only resource they had: the refuge in which to retreat from the influence of “civilians”. And he lost God. Or, rather, the Goddess. Through the examination of myths and legends, of tales and sayings, of sacred and profane iconography, the history of matriarchs, witches and “against” women – heretics, bandits, rebels – is reconstructed, verifying which traces they left in their memory.
