The WCA/C4W Piccolo Exhibit is inspired by the work of photojournalist Paola Gianturco. Ms. Gianturco traveled the world for four years to photograph festivals that celebrate women. She also interviewed performers, vendors, spectators, governmental officials, and religious leaders. She published her photographs in her book, Celebrating Women, in 2004.
