By and with Laura Caparrotti

The story of a woman who took no for an answer and went on to prove an old society and a male world wrong. Elena looks back at her life, her motifs, her passion.

Elena Lucrezia Cornaro Piscopia (5 June 1646 – 26 July 1684) was an Italian philosopher of noble descent, who was one of the first women to receive an academic degree from a university and in 1678 she became the first woman in the world to receive a Ph.D. degree.

Elena was considered to be an expert musician. In addition to mastering the sciblis of her time—which means she mastered almost the entire body of knowledge—Elena mastered the harpsichord, the clavichord, the harp, and the violin. Her skills were shown by the music that she composed in her lifetime.

She was a member of various academies and was esteemed throughout Europe for her attainments and virtues.
