The myth of Perseus and Andromeda

Video in Italian | Piero di Cosimo and his painting inspired by Ovid's Metamorphoses

Those who think that fantasy is a genre born only in recent times are wrong!

More than 500 years ago Piero di Cosimo, visionary and unrivaled artist, realized a painting inspired by Ovid's Metamorphoses and his tale of the liberation of Andromeda. He in fact was able to depict a sea monster that could be the protagonist of a fantasy film of our days.

For the #PaintedTales series of the Uffizi Galleries, here is the voice of Simone Rovida accompanying the mythical hero Perseus in the liberation of his Andromeda.

Enjoy the track!
