" « E io ch'avea d'error la testa cinta,

dissi: "Maestro, che è quel ch'i' odo?
e che gent'è che par nel duol sì vinta?".

Ed elli a me: "Questo misero modo
tegnon l'anime triste di coloro
che visser sanza 'nfamia e sanza lodo.

Mischiate sono a quel cattivo coro
de li angeli che non furon ribelli
né fur fedeli a Dio, ma per sé fuoro.

Caccianli i ciel per non esser men belli,
né lo profondo inferno li riceve,
ch'alcuna gloria i rei avrebber d'elli".

E io: "Maestro, che è tanto greve
a lor che lamentar li fa sì forte?".
Rispuose: "Dicerolti molto breve.

Questi non hanno speranza di morte,
e la lor cieca vita è tanto bassa,
che 'nvidïosi son d'ogne altra sorte.

Fama di loro il mondo esser non lassa;
misericordia e giustizia li sdegna:
non ragioniam di lor, ma guarda e passa". »

(Dante Alighieri, Inferno III, 31-51)

A surreal and dreamlike journey in the desires and hopes of any woman, the fairy-tale romance that can turn into a nightmare, the loneliness and despair in the absence of understanding or compassion.... 

Buffy Holfe in her characteristic irreverent way invites us to a complex reflection around the theme of violence against women with a dip in the subconscious: "indolent ... who in his life never acts either in good or bad, without ever daring ... without ever having an idea of their own, but merely to adapt and always stand up to that of the strongest ... "
Many women have marked the history of the entire world with their works, their thinking and their tenacity ... Cleopatra , Giovanna D'Arco , Maria Teresa D'Asburgo , Anna Maria Mozzoni , Marie Curie , Rita Levi Montalcini ... all women who have made history at different times ... all women who have fought for what they believed the conquest of important rights ... all women who have been able to face the hostility and ignorance of the world that surrounded , demonstrating their "non-inferiority".
All of us have the means and the ability to improve and change harrowing situations and subtle inhumanity towards women ... just do not ignore. "
