It all began with a small dispute between goddesses: Athena, Hera and Aphrodite all coveted the golden apple. The Trojan Paris, the judge in their quarrel, ruled that that the apple should go to Aphrodite, who offered him the love of Helen, the most beautiful of mortals. Paris abducted the latter and took her to Troy.
Achilles, Hector, Ulysses, Penelope, Circe, The Iliad and The Odyssey – these names continue to resonate with us even today.
Since Antiquity, Homer’s stories have provided artists with a multitude of primordial subjects that have shaped the history of art. The Homeric poems have repeatedly been sources of inspiration in literature, sciences, the arts, music and film, as well as morality and the art of living. What is the reason for this uninterrupted success?
 
Homer endlessly raises fascinating questions: was he a blind, wandering poet or a brilliant, inspired writer? Did he actually exist? Was he the sole author of The Iliad and The Odyssey, this monumental literary oeuvre?
Through nearly 300 works, discover the most ambitious exhibition ever devoted to the world of the “prince of poets”.
