GUERRIERE DAL SOL LEVANTE. LA FIGURA DELLA DONNA GUERRIERA IN GIAPPONE

Torino (TO) 18-10-2019 / 01-03-2020
Immagine guida - guerriere

While we do not have enough documentation that narrates the life and feats of the samurai, there is sufficient information on the Japanese warrior women to allow us to consider their deeds as the greatest not told story in the history of the samurai class.
Onnabugeisha, the warrior women, trained in the use of various types of weapons, to defend residences, to go into battle, ready to die, whose legendary feats are also remembered through theatrical dramas, film plots and historical re-enactments.
There are very few examples of female armour: the display of a very rare kind therefore makes the exhibition extremely attractive, together with blades, long and short swords, daggers, war fans, unconventional and hidden weapons, artistic and religious artifacts for daily use.
