Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] In the Fifties and Sixties, the Salerno-based Fisba (the CISL Federation of agricultural laborers) organized an impressive transfer of agricultural workers from the South to the north of the country for the "campaign of the world": a delicate and laborious phase of rice processing that lasted 4-5 weeks after which the women returned home with two precious gifts for families: a small sum of money and lots of rice. It was a real epic, involving tens of thousands of women workers (just called "worldly" or more simply "worldly") and hundreds of companies, on the border between women's history, trade union history and economic and social history and which ended in the early seventies with the advent of mechanization: an epic today almost forgotten if not in the personal memory of the protagonists of that time: the rice presses and trade unionists of the CISL of Salerno and Novara.
