Marie Curie non poté studiare in patria, la Polonia, perché in quell'epoca l'università era preclusa alle donne. Per questo si trasferì in Francia dove si laureò e si dedicò alla ricerca con enorme successo, fino al Premio Nobel. È solo uno dei tanti modelli femminili affascinanti, rigorosi, combattivi, mai banali, raccontati da Rita Levi-Montalcini. Storie straordinariamente esemplari per le adolescenti spaesate tra "velinismo" e paure. A loro, e ai loro fratelli e genitori, la più grande scienziata italiana racconta con passione i propri riferimenti personali: figure innovative, fiere e rivoluzionarie che hanno saputo affermarsi e trascinare con sé l'emancipazione della donna nella società occidentale, fino ai giorni nostri.

Elogio de la imperfección by Rita Levi-Montalcini ( Book )
8 editions published between 1989 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rita Levi-Montalcini ha aspirado siempre a conciliar dos aspiraciones irreconciliables (según el gran poeta Yeats): la perfección en la vida o la perfección en el trabajo. Lo logró optando por cierta imperfección en la vida y en el trabajo y al descubrir el placer que le procuraban ambas actividades, descubrió que eso, la imperfección, era lo que más se ajustaba a la naturaleza humana. Nacida en el seno de una familia judía, no ortodoxa pero sí practicante, Levi-Montalcini vivió su infancia en Turín, mientras se libraba la primera guerra mundial, y se empeñó en matricularse en medicina en 1930 para doctorarse en neurocirugía. Ayudante del eminente histólogo Guiseppe Levi, montó un laboratorio en su propia casa cuando las leyes raciales de la Italia fascista le impidieron proseguir sus investigaciones. Acabada la segunda guerra mundial, y durante treinta años, investigó en la Universidad de Washington en Saint Louis, y el descubrimiento del factor del crecimiento nervioso (NGF) le valió en 1986 el Premio Nobel de Medicina. En Elogio de la imperfección, la conocida neuróloga hace un apasionado balance de su trayectoria profesional y vital, una odisea que recorre todo un siglo
