THE MYTH OF THE ISTHMUS BETWEEN NATURE AND HISTORY

Tuesday 27 October 2015 POETRY 5.00 pm – admission free

Beniamino D’Errico and Caterina Giovanna Zizzi present their book “Le città dell’istmo calabrese: Catanzaro e Lamezia Terme” (“the cities on the Calabrese isthmus: Catanzaro and Lamezia Terme”). This book is packed full of fascination and curiosity, recounting the history of two cities which grew in the “mythical” ground between legend and history; from Ulisses to the Phaeacians, the Oenotrians to King Italo, the Magna Graecia, the Byzantines, the Normans, the Aragonese, the French, the Bourbons, up until the present day.

Anna Lombardo and Lucia Guidorizzi speak about this with the author, between myth and poetry.
