Di madre in madre (from mother to mother) is a multimedia research project, aimed at the revitalization of the matriarchy myth considering the effect that it can still produce, with a strong impact in achieving awareness of the cultural and gender roots in women's and today's mothers. It proposes a new point of view, using the image and visual communication as a tool for the dialogue between different disciplines. A dialogue between archeology, anthropology and photography that weaves the different aspects of the female figure. Anna Marceddu undertook an iconographic study of archaeological and historical artifacts present in Sardinian museums, which demonstrate the local cult of the Mother Goddess and the transmission of culture and power through matriarchal and matrilineal networks, weaving them with portraits of women who have experienced, or are experiencing, the essence of the Matriarchy. Looks that refer to the strength and hardness of the stone carved as a symbol of life and generation. A fil rouge that links past and present, weaving a close relationship between the feminine dimension within the society and its representation.
