On the occasion of International Women's Day, the VIVE institute, according to the guiding line of the General Management of Museums, invites all women and their kids to join a special animated tour dedicated to the architectural and artistic heritage of the Vittoriano and Palazzo Venezia.

Come to discover the stories safeguarded by the two female statues who “inhabit” the garden of Palazzo Venezia, the Venice of the sculptor Carlo Monaldi and the so-called "Madama Lucrezia", one of the “talking statues” of Rome, who guards the entrance to the palace.
A journey between female paintings and female stone sculptures, who narrate the many stories of the city and represent the creation of the image of a new nation.
