It may seem over-obvious, but is worth remembering that, although they have been erased from memory, women filled markets, shops, workshops, the streets and houses of the city.
In this book our wish been to put together some of these stories of these womwn of past centuries. Whe have included fifty one. In this collection you will find women who are fun, loving, cruel, passionate, intelligent, cultured, fair, naive, treacherous, reckless...
Each plays a leading role in this book and they all paint an original picture of the city.
Organised as routes around the old part, the intention of this book is to reveal women’s stories. A different view of the city’s past, with women at the fore-front.
With 62 images and 6 urban easy-to-follow itinerarie
