“Poesia o propaganda politica: considerazioni sulle finalità che sottendono l’Eneide”.

“Poesia o propaganda politica: considerazioni sulle finalità che sottendono l’Eneide”. E’ questo il tema del simposio organizzato dalla Vergilian Society che si svolgerà dal 17 al 20 giugno presso la Villa Vergiliana a Cuma. Il simposio annovera studiosi provenienti, oltre che dalle Università americane, anche da quelle europee (Spagna, Olanda, Belgio, Gran Bretagna, Francia) Il simposio, che rappresenta un appuntamento annuale ormai consolidato su temi virgiliani, pone in discussione le finalità che spinsero Virgilio a scrivere l’ Eneide. Propaganda politica? Bisogno di pace dopo tante guerre? Spiritualità e divinità? Questi i quesiti principali sui quali si confronteranno studiosi classici di tutto il mondo. Direttori del simposio la professoressa Patricia A. Johnston della Brandeis University, Giovanni Casadio dell’Università di Salerno, Giancarlo Abbamonte della Università Federico II. L’evento si struttura in sedute mattitune e pomeridiane e sarà arricchito da visite guidate ai siti archeologici flegrei.
