Storia e problemi contemporanei
101 - 121 p.
The article explores the first development of the Second Wave Feminist movement in Trento (Italy). With the new-born faculty of Sociology (founded in 1962, the first in Italy), Trento has become one of the symbols of the ‘68 movement and its neuralgic role in that mobilization has been extensively studied. However, in the same period Trento was also one of the first Italian cities in which the Second wave feminist movement made its appearance. This article reconstructs the untold story of that pioneering political experience, which played a crucial, yet forgotten role in the development of the Italian feminist movement. The research, at the crossroads of sociology and history, is based both on archival research and 30 in-depth interviews with the activists involved in the foundation of one of the first Italian feminist groups: il Cerchio spezzato (the Broken circle).
