Photographer's Note

Walking around the beautiful museum of Palazzo Altemps in Rome, you can meet someone special offering you a cup of wine, trying to free you from your normal self...this is Dionysus, the ancient Greek god of wine, inspirer of ritual madness and ecstasy, and a major figure of Greek mythology. In Ancient Rome he was also known as Bacchus.

=====================================================

Camminando per le enormi e bellissime stanze di Palazzo Altemps, a Roma, si possono fare incontri "storici"...cos capita di incontrare Dioniso, o Bacco (per gli antichi Romani) che ti offre un bicchiere di buon vino...magari ci stai e chiss che non ci si perda in chiss quale sogno, chiss che non ci si lasci andare ad una gioiosa estasi liberatoria, in ogni senso....
