Luisa Amalia Paladini (1810 – 1872), a scholar and teacher from Lucca, belonged to that large band of ‘plotters’ of the Risorgimento who found themselves excluded from the political and institutional structures of the new State. She published collections of poems, collaborated with newspapers addressed to a female audience, ran the girls’ nursery school in Lucca, the women’s experimental university in Florence, the “Vittorio Emanuele II” girls’ boarding school in Lecce and was General Inspector of schools for Tuscany.
The case contains exhibits from the daily life of the time, such as an ink stand, manuscripts, books and a board game.
