Medusa And Women’s Power at The Met

Last evening at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, we discussed the mythology and iconography of Medusa with Danielle Oteri of Feast on History leading the way. Along with Tony Allicino, and an astute group of attendees, I enjoyed a fascinating discourse about this ancient art and what it told us of women’s role in the culture and society of Magna Grecia — There was a lot of fear about women’s power, depicted through the myth of the gorgon, Medusa.

Thank you Danielle for your presentation and to Tony for helping Experience Sicily organize such an event. More of this, and how we can experience Sicily in New York City and beyond to come!
