Maria Antonietta Torriani (1840-1920), better known as La Marchesa Colombi, was a writer and the first female journalist at Il Corriere della Sera. She was the quintessential proto-feminist and became a protagonist of the intellectual circles of turn-of-the-century Italy. For this episode of Tutti a Casa! journalist Maria Teresa Cometto will talk about her book, La Marchesa Colombi: Vita, romanzi e passioni della prima giornalista del Corriere della Sera (2020, Solferino) with Professor Antonia Arslan, the leading scholar of Italian Women Writers between 19th and 20th century.
