Aracne, a young and gifted weaver from the ancient Lydia region, challenges Minerva, the uncontested goddess of weaving. It is the start of a battle between humanity and divinity, talent and power, inspired by the VI book of Ovidio’s Metamorphosis. A cryptical and elegant fight takes place, divided in levels like a videogame, where the girl resists the goddess’ assaults. Minerva, enraged by the young woman’s haughtiness, forces her into an infernal descent into her deepest self. A lacerating clash consumes the charming Aracne, bringing her into another dimension where she meets with the Muses, the supreme ideal of Arts and Truth, who try to dissuade her from provoking the goddess. Inside a pyramid of light, between night and day, the fates of Aracne and Minerva seem to swap for a moment. But the trap of the goddess is already set and, as it often happens in real life, the powerful defeats the talented.
