In honour of the 60th anniversary of the Association AIDIA (Associazione Italiana Donne Ingegneri e Architetti), the Italian Association of Women Engineers and Architects, there will be the conference entitled “Donne che costruiscono” (“Women who build”). The Association AIDIA was founded in Turin 1957 by a group of women with a degree in engineering and architecture with the aim of upgrading women’s work in the field of profession and technique.

On 19th May 2017, in Salone d’Onore of the Castle of Valentino, at the Polytechnic University of Turin, “Women who build” will celebrate history and will pay tribute to this important anniversary, taking stock of the evolution and the social and cultural situation of our Country.

This day will also be the opportunity to present the book “AIDIA 60 – I primi 60 anni di qualità al femminile”, which was written in order to preserve the memory of what has been made, reminding us that in the past everything was more difficult and exhausting without the right tools, but above all without the cultural freedom and the freedom of action that we have today.
