Following the current perspectives offered by international gender and feminist studies, this article aims to analyze the history of Italian photography, focusing on the period from the 1970s up to today, investigating the sources from a different viewpoint, and starting from new questions which identify the contribution of events and authors to feminist photography in Italy. The article also aims to respond to the many still open questions regarding the space of visibility of women in Italian photography. And in particular: How does the new generation of Italian women photographers relate to the Italian feminist heritage? Is it possible to trace a shared poetics in their work that characterizes their belonging to a common theoretical and practical dimension that can be defined as feminist? Or do they reject cultural labels and heritages from which they feel alienated?
