Daphnis + Chloe
Un amore bucolico

One of the most famous and iconic love stories of all time, the pastoral idyll Daphnis and Chloe is one of the earliest novels ever written and the only surviving work of the writer Longus from Lesbos, whose life is mostly shrouded in mystery. The various plot twists – the trials and tribulations faced by the two lovers before they finally end up together – are secondary to what is the real issue here: the romanticized and nuanced description of the nature of Lesbos. Each season signals a different chapter in the youths’ romance, reflecting the ebb and flow of their emotions.
