The Exhibition is held under the auspices of the Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs, Culture and Sports. The Exhibition attempts to redefine the human and the social body of today. Inspired by the myth of the goddess Aphrodite, more than 50 Greek and foreign artists will broach the adventure of the human body as a suffering historical subject, using all the expressive tools of art at their disposal: words, paintbrushes, chisels, pixels, notes. Conversing with the archetypal model of beauty, they submit their reflections and reveal that passions born of romantic love (eros) render the adventure of life most fascinating! The Exhibition is enriched with literary soirées, where texts on relative subject matter are read by the writers themselves or by actors. Musical events that cover a broad range of selections: from antiquity to the baroque, the tango, art songs and popular emotional vocal renditions accompany the Exhibition. There will also be screenings of films in which love stars in various roles.
