About the event

Name given by the Romans to all the orgiastic festivals of the Orphic-Dionysian cult (in Greek τὰ βακχεῖα; see dionysus; mysteries; Orphism); in a special way, however, used to designate those Dionysian mysteries which, from Magna Graecia, where they penetrated, at the beginning of the century. 2nd century C., through Etruria, into Rome. It is said that a Greek from southern Italy, a priest and fortune teller who came to Etruria, introduced the Dionysian rites there, which soon degenerated into more libertine orgies, a pretext, at times, for all sorts of erotic or passionate actions. From Etruria these rites passed to Rome. Here it seems that the Dionysian rites were already practiced, imported directly from Magna Graecia: they consisted of nocturnal celebrations which were held three times a year in the wood of Stimula (Latin name of Semele) and in which only honored Roman matrons participated. Later, however, a woman from Campania, priestess of this cult, Annia Paculla, completely transformed the ritual, conforming it to the model of the Etruscan one: men were admitted and the meetings were increased to five every month. From then on, rumors began to spread that all sorts of limitless fun was committed at these meetings. Livia's story tells precisely how the spread of new and secret cults has reached the present day. We are waiting for you on this unique evening, where we will rediscover the passion and emotions of times that never were... LΞ PROMΞNΛDΞ CLUB ... 𝓣𝓻𝓪𝓷𝓼𝓰𝓻𝓮𝓼𝓼𝓲𝓸𝓷...
