Syracuse , Sicily
The cultural and intellectual legacy of Greater Greece—the coastal areas of Southern Italy and Sicily settled by Hellenes in the 8th and 7th centuries BCE—is often overlooked in academic studies. Yet evidence suggests that poets, playwrights, philosophers, and many other maverick intellectuals found fertile ground here for the growth of their ideas and the harvesting of their work. The goal of this conference and of the Fonte Aretusa organization is to revive the inspirational link between the new and old worlds of Greece and to explore its intellectual wealth.
