The interesting appointments in collaboration with the International Center for Writers of Calabria for historical and thematic analysis continue, for the enhancement of the archaeological museum heritage.
On Thursday, November 15th, at 5.30 pm, Paola Radici Colace, professor of classical Philology at the University of Messina, will hold a conference with video projection on the theme “The Trojans of Euripides , or the tragedy after the end of the war”.
It is the second meeting of the cycle “Women and war in the Greek theater”.
The philologist will treat the tragedy of Euripides from the point of view of women, humiliated, raped, killed during the conflict, and preyed as war booty by the winners. Written in conjunction with the terrible events of War in the Peloponnese, “recounting the drama of the Trojans reduced to slavery after the Athenians had killed the males, describing them waiting on the beach to be assigned to their master, the play contains a universal message, which crosses all times and cultures and goes beyond the stage and the Greek world”, Radici Colace says. “The weeping of women, due to the painful separation from their affections and their land and the uncertainty of their destiny, is the crying of all the women who have lived or who experience the war, violence, live intensely expatriation”.
Speakers: the director of MArRC, Carmelo Malacrino, and the president of ICS, Loreley Rosita Borruto.
