Donne come noi: on stage with Tosca at the teatro Franco Parenti in Milan

The show inspired by the book “Donne come noi” written by Donna Moderna and published by Sperling&Kupfer

Donne come noi is the name of the show produced by Donna Moderna, in collaboration with the Teatro Franco Parenti, that will open in Milano on 17 April 2018 before going on to tour Italy.

Based on the book of the same name, written by 34 journalists on the editorial team of the magazine, and published by Sperling & Kupfer. Donne come noi is a collection of 100 stories of contemporary Italian women who on the strength of their tenacity, competence and courage have achieved something important.

They include: Fabiola Gianotti director general of CERN, Pinin Brambilla Barcilon restorer of the Last Supper, Elena Cattaneo pharmacologist, biologist and life senator, well know for her research in stem cells and Huntington’s disease, Chiara Vigo weaver and the world’s last great expert of fine linen, Paola Zukar the lady of rap and manager of artists such as Fabri Fibra and Marracash, Roberta Buzzolani Chief Prosecutor of Sciacca, Francesca Bosco one of Italy’s best-known criminologists, Bebe Vio fencer and paralympic champion, Sofia Goggia one of the world’s leading skiers and winner of the downhil gold medal at the recent Winter Olympic Games.

The show by Giulia Minoli and Emanuela Giordano, brings to the stage 5 actors who interpret some of the protagonists of the book, accompanied by piano, cello and accordion. The leading part is played by actor and singer Tosca with Giovanna Famulari, Maria Chiara Augenti, Eleonora De Luca, Rita Ferraro and Fabia Salvucci who together will tell the stories of women who have changed ytheir lives and those of others, that are a hope for the future, who can be taken as models and examples.

Donne come noi is a project dedicated to female empowerment. Empowerment means giving both power and responsibility to someone. In this case it means encouraging women to think big. Donna Moderna, the Mondadori Group weekly edited by Annalisa Monfreda, wants to achieve this with an inspiring book, a show that is meaningful and moving and with training courses that develop concrete skills.
Teamwork, time management, career reconfiguration, thinking outside the box, learning to tell your story: these are just some of the skills that the training course, offered for free in many Italian towns and cities, aims to develop.
The objective of the training course is to provide participants with the so-called soft skills, that today count so much in the selection of candidates. The team of trainers will be supported by a number of professionals from companies who will bring their knowledge and experience.

L’Oréal Paris is supporting Donna Moderna in this project, just as it is always on the side of women, in terms of beauty but also in terms of self-esteem, as is expressed by the company’s famous claim “Because I’m worth it”. L’Oréal supports women by encouraging them to see themselves as “unlimited” with regard to realising their potential.
L’Oréal Paris offers the show and the training courses for free to Italian women so that everyone can learn to believe in their own worth.
