    A precise and previously unpublished archival research collects and reveals the biographical events of all the “girls” of the Bauhaus, the Bauhausmädels. Design historian Anty Pansera involves the reader by transporting them to the fascinating life inside the school where male and female students lived together with masters of the caliber of Gropius, Mies van der Rohe, Kandinskij, Klee, and free time was shared between parties, readings, political discussions, love stories, exhibitions, artistic performances, music (Bauhaus had its own orchestra), sports; in the background, of course, the tragic rise of Nazism which led to the closure of the academy, the prohibition of practicing for artists, and which forced many of the women (more than 14% were of Jewish origin) to flee and exile, when not to death in a concentration camp.

    Published by Nomos Edizioni in Italian, the book shows unpublished archive photos of the school and collects in an extensive infographic some data relating to the Bauhausmädels, while on the back cover and in the flaps there is a visual representation of when our protagonists took part in the life of the school.
