Italian Virginia Woolf Society (ItVWS)

The Italian Virginia Woolf Society aims to promote the knowledge and the study of Virginia Woolf in Italy, and specifically her figure of a woman artist, writer and intellectual who had a fundamental role in the development of women’s thought and more in general of the critical, ethical and aesthetical conscience of the XX century. We wish to get young women and young man closer to her essays, her novels and her personal writings – inexhaustible source of intellectual and spiritual nourishment – so that they could draw from a life and thought experience which might result decisive for their personal formation under many aspects. Virginia and Leonard Woolf, and the other intellectuals and artists that together with them were part of the Bloomsbury group at the beginning of XX century, faced questions of great complexity, such as equality, emancipation, war, peace, presenting us with a patrimony of ideas that our Society wishes to safeguard and spread, having as its main goal to become the reference point, both physical and virtual, for all those who wish to get closer to this experience for study, work or personal reasons.
