Borsa Italiana in collaboration with MuseoCity, will participate to the first digital edition of Museocity which will be held from 31 July to 2 August. The initiative, promoted by the Municipality of Milan, aims to spread knowledge of the great Italian cultural heritage. The project entitled “Short Stories of Great Women”, curated by Francesca Pini, will focus on female talents in art. For the occasion, Francesca Pini has chosen the renown artist Giosetta Fioroni. The curator will be exploring Giosetta Fioroni’s artistic achievements from our gallery in Rome. 

The project will gradually be enriched with further contributions from female Italian museum directors, of international fame, personally chosen by the curator, to share stories regarding female talent, a short narrative that will begin with a work from the museum collection.
