May the happy and honored women of future times turn their thoughts bit by bit to the sorrows and humiliations of the women who preceded them in life, and recall with some gratitude the names of those who opened and prepared for them the way to the never before enjoyed, perhaps barely dreamed of happiness!” 

Cristina Trivulzio di Belgiojoso, 1866


One year after the installation of the first statue dedicated to a woman in Milan, Cristina Trivulzio di Belgiojoso (September 15th, 2021),  from the union of Milanese cultural institutions governed by women, the new project ABITO is born, a civic education path that accompanies secondary school students on the path to conscious citizenship through the languages of art and culture.

The installation of the statue, as a tribute to the revolutionary Cristina Trivulzio di Belgiojoso, was a starting point for Le Dimore del Quartetto to recognize women’s action and promote a society of equals.

ABITO was created with this goal: to raise awareness and establish a dialogue with young students, through the languages of arts and culture, to combat stereotypes and inequalities, build citizenship that is attentive to individual growth, respectful of other people and participatory in building collective opportunities for relationships.

Through the use of artistic and poetic languages, those who “make culture” direct society’s gaze, stimulate reflections that lead to change, and use past experiences to transform them and make them relevant today.

ABITO is promoted by Le Dimore del Quartetto, Fondazione Arnoldo e Alberto Mondadori, Triennale Milano Teatro, Museo Teatrale alla Scala, Italia Music Lab e Equaly.
