Female toponymy – Marisa Bellisario

Marisa Bellisario, despite experiencing the drama of the Second World War, managed to distinguish herself in the workplace by becoming the first female manager in Italy, and becoming President of Olivetti of America at the end of the 70s. In the 1980s, she completely restructured Italtel, making it a cutting-edge company, not only in the industrial field, but also in the workplace with the considerable increase of women graduates employed by the company. During these years she also became President of the section on new technologies within the National Commission for the realization of equality between men and women, and continued to follow her work as CEO of Italtel despite the illness that led to her death.
