“Aracne” was produced and realized in Rome at the CRM – Music Research Center and at Edison Studio.
The radio version is from 1998.
The myth of “Arachne” is told here in the form of a dialogue between Arachne and Athena: the challenge between the two contenders in the creation of the most beautiful work, the victory of Arachne and the ferocious revenge of Athena are here repeated in an external dimension of figurative time and space.
A myth about the oppression that is perpetuated to infinity always the same, except for negligible details, from the dawn of civilization to the present day and from today to the distant future.
