“Women's Emancipation!... There you have it: a gathering of women dealing with the big issue! But a little mouse that suddenly emerges from the wall terrifies them: the agendas, the notes, the inkwells, the question, everything is turned upside down. The women run away, jump on chairs, scream. An immense and well-designed picture»1. This is how the large vertical canvas Emancipation of the Woman was described in a magazine of the time, presented by Pietro Saporetti at the National Exhibition of Fine Arts in Rome in 1883 and then re-proposed the following year in Turin and in 1885 in Faenza.
