The Legends of the Olympus
Mitologika - Volume 03

After the escape from the labyrinth and the defeat of the Minotaur, how does the story of Theseus and Ariadne end?
What secret does hide the Strait of Sicily, where in the past it was believed lived the monsters Scylla and Charybdis?
We find all the answers in classical mythology, that set of beliefs and stories that have come down to us from ancient Greece through the Romans. 
Even today these myths are the foundatition of Western culture. Epic adventures and exploits, which have like main characters gods like Zeus or Athena, indefatigable heroes like Heracles or Perseus, and wild beasts like Cerberus and the Harpies. All subject to the will of Fate, be they mortal or immortal.
The writer Alessia Mainardi tells the most famous and lesser-known events, moving in an imaginary from Olympus to the Underworld populated by gods, men and monsters. It is a journey into classical myths with an unpublished and original reinterpretation, accompanied of the illustrations by Vanadia Cinardo, Andrea Piparo, Lorenzo Benini, Ilaria Trombi and Maddalena Modena.
