A universe of beauty and loving sweetness; of strength, courage and determination; of intelligence and talent!
They are daughters, friends, wives, mothers, but also workers, managers and high officials of the State.

Like every year, we wish to celebrate March 8: International Women’s Day.
A day dedicated to memory and reflection on the political, social and economic achievements of the fair sex.


What is the origin?


The history of the Women’s day dates back to the early twentieth century.

For several years, the origin of March 8 was related to a tragedy that occurred in 1908, which had as protagonists the workers of the Cotton textile industry in New York, whom were killed by a fire.

However, the facts that really led to the institution of Women’s Day are linked to the events regarding the struggle for the vindication of women’s rights, including the right to vote.

The mimosa

UDI – the union of Italian women – was founded in Italy in 1945. This association choose the mimosa like the symbol of Women’s Day.

A fragrant flower that blooms in this period, in which many yellow dots united in the same twig, be a symbol of closeness and solidarity between womens.


The philosophy of inclusion

On March 8, we want to celebrate all women, especially our women of SPII … but not only!

Today is a special day, commemorating gender parity, a concept we should remember every day and which should bring us back to a broader view of inclusion.



Where inclusion means celebrating PEOPLE as such, with their many facets, regardless of the female or male gender.

Because only together can we make a difference and achieve great goals, careless of our gender, our ideals or our role.

It is a day to remember that there are no limits unless we decide.
Because we, as human beings, can do everything.

Happy Women’s Day & Happy Inclusion Day by SPII.

La forza che muove il mondo!

La forza che muove il mondo! 2466 1647 Spii

Un universo di bellezza e amorevole dolcezza; di forza, coraggio e determinazione; di ingegno e talento!
Sono figlie, amiche, mogli, mamme, ma anche lavoratrici, manager ed alte cariche dello Stato.

Come ogni anno, vogliamo celebrare l’8 marzo: la Giornata internazionale della Donna.
Una giornata dedicata al ricordo ed alla riflessione sulle conquiste politiche, sociali, economiche del gentil sesso.


Qual è la sua origine?


La storia della festa delle Donne risale ai primi anni del Novecento.

L’origine dell’8 marzo, per diversi anni, è stata collegata ad una tragedia accaduta nel 1908, che ha avuto come protagoniste le operaie dell’industria tessile Cotton di New York, rimaste uccise da un incendio.

Tuttavia, i fatti che hanno realmente portato all’istituzione della festa della Donna sono legati agli avvenimenti riguardo la lotta per la rivendicazione dei diritti delle donne, tra i quali il diritto di voto.

La mimosa

Nel 1945 in Italia venne fondata l’UDI, l’unione delle donne italiane.

Fu proprio questa associazione a scegliere – come simbolo della Festa della Donna – la mimosa, un fiore profumato che sboccia in questo periodo, in cui tanti pallini gialli uniti in uno stesso ramoscello, raffigurano la vicinanza e la solidarietà tra Donne.

La filosofia dell’inclusione

In occasione dell’8 marzo, vogliamo celebrare tutte le Donne, in particolar modo le nostre Donne di SPII…ma non solo!

Oggi è un giorno speciale, che commemora la parità tra i sessi, un concetto che dovremmo ricordare ogni giorno e che dovrebbe riportarci ad una visione più ampia dell’inclusione.



Dove inclusione vuol dire celebrare le PERSONE in quanto tali, con le loro mille sfaccettature, a prescindere dal genere femminile o maschile.

Perché solo insieme possiamo fare la differenza e raggiungere grandi traguardi, nonostante il nostro sesso, i nostri ideali o il nostro ruolo.

È un giorno per ricordare che non ci sono limiti, a meno che non lo decidiamo noi.
Perché noi, come essere umani, possiamo fare tutto.


#WhereverWeCan!

Buona festa delle Donne & Buona festa dell’inclusione da parte di SPII.

Alla prossima puntata,

Happy everyone’s day

happy women's day

Today is a special day. A day to celebrate the force of creation, of change, of resilience.
A great day to remember what we should know everyday.

A day to celebrate the colleagues and team leaders sitting next to us, for the great job they are doing.
To be amazed by the decisions taken by our boss or manager, for the strength and the leadership shown.
To appreciate the relentless work of the assistant, the smile of the caretaker, the attentions of the train crew.

A day to remove the world “female” before any profession, not because it is more or less politically correct, but because it is just superfluous.

Today is the day of Francesca, who smiles at passengers boarding the train she works on because she loves her job. Or Ilaria, who can give for granted the fact that she is driving one.
It is the day of the Russian women, who can start doing this job for the first time in history.
But it is also the day of the countless women who, around the world, still can’t pursue their dreams.

It’s a day to remember that there are no limits, unless we decide so. That WE, humans, can do everything – when we are not told that we can’t.

Choose to challenge

hornet story

In 2021, the International Women’s Day theme is to challenge. Because that’s where change starts.

Do you know the story of the hornet? It’s said that, given the weight of its body and the dimension of its wings, he should not be able to fly. Yet he doesn’t know it, so he flies on and well!

Be it true or not, our challenge for everyone today is to dare being like the hornet.
Ignore what you are told you can not or should not do, just fly.

Just go #WhereverYOUCan.

Choose to include

Our call is for everyone – men, women, and all that falls between.

Because today should be a day of inclusion.
And Inclusion is for everybody, not just for women.
Inclusion means that we understand we can’t do anything alone: we need to join forces to succeed, despite of sex, ideals, roles, etc.

Today is a day when no one should feel excluded, much less so should men. There is no “International men’s day”, and we don’t want them to think we don’t value their role as we do! 😉

Today is a day to celebrate women in all of their forms. But most of all to celebrate friends, colleagues, bosses, train drivers, train managers…without any addition to it.

Happy International Everyone’s Day from SPII!

See you next time,
Ilaria Cazziol
