Albeit the maritime word is traditionally considered as a solely male domain, starting from the second half of the Nineteenth century several women as shipowners, maritime staff and also fisher[wo]men rode the waves of the Upper and Eastern Adriatic.

The Marie Skłodowska Currie Actions (MSCA) Project “We Can Do It! Women’s labour market participation in the maritime sector in the Upper Adriatic after the two World Wars in an intersectional perspective” (acronym: WeCanIt; grant agreement No. 894257) funded by Horizon 2020 just deals with their hidden history.
