Bona Dea

The woodland of Casale Flaminia contains a sacred site manifested by the ancient goddess Bona Dea and 2000 years ago provided a sanctuary for women with rites that sanctified the temporary removal of customary constraints imposed on Roman women of all classes by Roman tradition.

Bona Dea

"The Bona Dea releasing in a most beautiful colourful canvas what is past... to draw down deep with. To move to stillness, to nourish and replenish."

- Sandy Marie Humby, Writer in Residence -

- Visiting Artist -

The solo artist Lina Hermsdorf was a frequent visitor at Casale Flaminia working on her art film project during her artist-in-residence at the Mahler&LeWitt Studios in Spoleto. 

 

The project is centred around the Lucus Bona Dea here at Acquaiura, a little known ancient sacred forest on the land of Casale Flaminia dedicated to the Roman goddess Bona Dea and 2000 years ago provided a sanctuary for women with rites that sanctified the temporary removal of customary constraints imposed on Roman women of all classes by Roman tradition.

Lucas Bona Dea by solo artist Lina Hermsdorf is exhibited in London at Jupiter Woods, a female led arts organisation.
