The exhibition is hosted at Palazzo Reale, until 5 September 2021 and is part of "La Bella Estate", the summer cultural program offered by the Municipality of Milan. An intention shared and supported by the Terre des Hommes Foundation which, for 10 years has been carrying out the defenseless campaign, for the rights of girls and girls and through the petition #UnaStatuaPerLeBambine, launched in July 2020, invited the Milanese citizens to reflect on the theme of gender equality and the need to choose new models and symbols for the girls and women of tomorrow, to whom to dedicate new monuments in the city.
