In ancient Greece there was god Dionysus while in Roman Empire there was god Baccus. Dionysus and Baccus were twins and both gods of wine and party! Between the end of December and the beginning of January, people organized a special celebration in honour of the 2 gods : Dionysiae and Baccanalia. These celebrations were a moment of fun and liberation of the senses. Through the centuries, ancient gods were forgotten and celebrations did not take place any more. But now things are gonna change!
Like the gods of their ancient fathers, AEGEE Ioannina and AEGEE Salerno are twins (do you remember AgorAsturias?) and decided to bring back this old tradition.
This december, prophecies are coming true.
30 elected AEGEEans will celebrate the dioNYsiaE once again!!
Cups will be filled, bottles will be emptied, hearts will be shaken!!
From 29th December till 4th of January the twin antennae of Salerno and Ioannina are organizing a New Year’s Eve Event made of Gods and Stars! In these 7 days (and nights!) you will have the chance to learn more about these two cultures and their common glorious history in the cult of Dionysos, the God of Wine, Theatre and Joy!
