Essentially, the transformations that have affected parents over time have characterised the father-daughter, mother-daughter dyad. Christine de Pizan, Italian excellence in the world, is as important for historical purposes as for reflecting on the pedagogical understanding of family dynamics. The paper highlights the role of the writer’s father and mother, pointing out that these were decisive in the author’s development of her talent. While remote through the centuries, the parental relationship characterising the de Pizan family is revolutionary with respect to the Middle Ages. An example that could teach: a relationship with one’s parents and with the world.
