Virgil Society lecture: Dr Filomena Giannotti (Siena)

‘Outracing the Wind with Speeding Feet: Portrayals of Camilla from Aeneid 7 and 11’


The paper focuses on Camilla’s athletic abilities, especially her speed in running, and on related images and ideas, such as lightness, flight and horses as a symbol of speed. Its main purpose is to discover some new aspects from among the many interesting ways in which Virgil presents this fascinating character in Aeneid 7 and 11.
