    This article examines the role of Italian women artists in the setting up of video art initiatives in Italy. It begins by comparing it to the situation in the UK and the experience of Elaine Shemilt (see Felicity Sparrow's interview in n.paradoxa, vol.34). The discussion highlights the work of artists, Anna Valeria Borsari; Ketty La Rocca; Maud Ceriotti, Federica Marangoni and Lola Bonora, founder of Centro Video Arte in 1973. The article is based on first-hand interviews with key players and original archival research. It comes out of Leuzzi's work on two AHRC funded projects, REWINDItalia and Early Women's Video Art (EWVA).
