Ars Erotica is a new Sky Original series set to debut on May 23 on Sky Arte at 9:15 p.m., streaming on NOW and available on demand on Sky Go. Here, Eurydice Axen recounts in a light and ironic way the relationship between the arts and eroticism through the most representative works published between the 15th and 19th century.
With her, there will be three experts who will analyse customs and traditions related to sex over the centuries: historian of ideas Riccardo Fedriga, philosopher and writer Ilaria Gaspari, and art historian Giovanni Careri, surrounded by the prestigious setting of Bologna's Palazzo Bevilacqua Ariosti.
Each episode deals with a theme in an oppositional way: from men to gods, from public to private, from idea to flesh, from participant to voyeur, from torment to ecstasy. A five-stage journey that will let us discover how mortal the gods are and how divine the humans are.
Ars Erotica is a Sky production created by Bottega Finzioni with Euridice Axen, from an idea by Irene Cao, written by Michele Cogo and Francesca Tancini with the collaboration of Giuseppe Cassaro and directed by Maxim Derevianko.
