Olympia By Giuseppe Carlo Delli Santi
eBook (PDF): $6.68
Questa è la storia romanzata di Mirso, un giovane atleta di Efeso, città della Lidia sulle coste anatoliche e di Dimitra di Argo, una fanciulla greca del Peloponneso. Questi sono... More > personaggi di fantasia. Non lo è invece, di fantasia, tutto il resto. Infatti è anche la storia di Fidia, il più grande artista della Grecia Classica che ha operato ad Atene soprattutto come scultore, ma anche come architetto e pittore e quindi a Olympia dove si sono incrociate le strade del ragazzo di Lidia e del grande maestro ateniese. L’epoca in cui è ambientato il romanzo è il V secolo a.C., il periodo preciso: tra il 438 e il 436. Come si è detto, il protagonista e gli altri personaggi che lo contornano direttamente, sono tutti di assoluta fantasia, non così i grandi personaggi citati e il contesto storico, molto curato. Il romanzo è in parte epico in parte tragico, quindi immerso nell’atmosfera prevalente in Grecia alla fine del periodo Classico.< Less
