For a long time, women were not allowed to compete for the Prix de Rome and it became a symbol of the difficulties they were faced with at the Paris Conservatoire. Once it was finally opened to them, the time came for the first victory: Lili Boulanger won the 1913 Prix de Rome, thus proving that works of quality had nothing to with gender. How did the story unfold after that, in the long term?
