Female Scolacium. Stories of women from antiquity


Italy, Calabria – Sunday, March 8th 2020, at 11.00 a.m., in Roccelletta di Borgia – Borgia (Catanzaro), at the museum and national archaeological park of Scolacium, will be celebrated International Women’s Day with a fascinating, evocative proposal of great emotional impact entitled Stories of women from antiquity.

It will, in fact, be possible to retrace, through a special guided tour, the many testimonies of the female world present in this seat related to the Museum of Calabria.

Established in 2005, the museum is housed in a 19th century rural building that belonged to Barons Mazza. The materials on display, the result of archaeological research carried out in the area where the museum is located, refer to a period of time ranging from the fifth century BC to the sixth century AD. In the park, largely planted with olive trees and acquired by the State in 1982, stands out the imposing structure of the Norman basilica known as the Roccelletta, which can be dated between the end of the 11th century and the middle of the 12th century. Also visible are the remains of the Roman city, heir to the Greek Skylletion, which became a colony after the war against Hannibal, with the name of Minervia Scolacium.

Therefore the reinterpretation of the many female figures that have indelibly marked their earthly passage is appropriate and in line for the now consolidated and widespread celebration of 8 March.
