This article addresses the Italian feminist movement of the 1970s and its historiography from the perspective of its witness and researcher, Anna Rossi-Doria. In the first part, the essay investigates the Italian feminist movement in the late 1970s and its transformation in the subsequent decade. During this transition, the Italian Women’s Liberation Movement – which until then had displayed a strictly political character – emerged as a prominent cultural phenomenon, leading to the institutionalization of feminist studies in the 1990s. The second section concerns the recent historiographical debate on neo-feminism, with a focus on Anna Rossi-Doria’s cultural and political awareness and on the legacy of her research methods.
