Nowhere is Potsdam more Italian than in the Roman Baths. The group of buildings at the small lake with its garden, with vine arbour and pergola, arcades and places to rest and the exquisite interiors inspired by an ancient villa form a world of their own. This happy island invites you to a rendezvous with Sappho who the Greeks and Romans admired as their greatest poet: Plato called her »the tenth muse«. Only fragments of her poetry have survived: glowing, vibrating with love and passion and filled with powerful beauty. You will meet her also in musical form. However, not only your ears will be massaged artfully this afternoon in the kingdom of the senses.

Event is in the past.
