Friday February 14, on the occasion of Valentine 2020, will be staged in the Museum of the Underground of Naples, a truly suggestive show on one of the most beautiful and most romantic love stories of all time.
The show whose title is Chimera: The tale of Cupid and Psyche in the eyes of Dino Campana, will stage the beautiful story narrated by Apuleio, of the overwhelming and passionate love of Love and Psyche together with the verses of Dino Campana.
The show was born from an idea of Livia Bertè to celebrate the great artist Carmelo Bene in the tenth anniversary of his death, for this reason verses are freely inserted from the Canti Orfici, the workhorse of the actor, within the story.
