EVENT DESCRIPTION

Who was the real Cleopatra? Not just a queen, but above all a woman in a world of men, a lover of culture, a mother and an influencer.

She was actually known as Cleopatra VII, the last in a long line of kings and queens descended from the Macedonian general Ptolemy I Soter who had risen to kingship of Egypt during the chaotic wars that followed the death of Alexander the Great. She was a Greek queen and she was born in Alexandria, the newly founded centre of Hellenist culture.

But she had to integrate into a millenary culture, that of Pharaonic Egypt. We will discover the many faces of the most famous queen of Egypt and the reason of her multiple representations, sometimes as a male pharaoh, occasionally with the nose of the father, and other times as Isis, mother of Horus.

And of course we will also talk about her romances with two notable Romans: Julius Caesar and Marc Antony. We will try to understand the true nature of her relationship with Julius and we will follow her travels to Rome, where she spent almost two years and left an indelible mark as only a true fashion influencer can do. We will find out how this woman had to prepare herself for an interrogation that would have changed her life: the one conducted by Marc Antony. And yes! She was pretty convincing and it was love at first sight. And then the tragic epilogue: in 31 b.C. Octavian’s forces soundly defeated those of Antony and Cleopatra in the Battle of Actium. How were the last moments of her life?
