Posted at 10:31h in Art - Music - Poetry - Dance 2018
Imagine Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of beauty and desire, returning to Ancona, the city she founded (‘ankon’ means elbow in Greek). She will be very surprised to find that the new things built by humans are no longer inspired by beauty. Hence, she will go back to her mythical birthplace, between the sky and the sea. A nocturnal, visionary journey by the protagonist across ancient monuments and a modern city… in search of herself and of ideal beauty. The philosophy of Plato meets the contemporary world.
