International Prize PEGASUS for the Arts in VENICE

Pegasus was, according to Greek mythology, a winged horse, connected to the myth of Bellerophon and Perseus. How this horse came to be is, to say the least, unusual. Her mother was Medusa, the Gorgon famous, in her youth, for her beauty, in particular for her flowing hair, who married Poseidon, god of the sea and horses. Unfortunately, the union between Medusa and Poseidon took place in the temple of the goddess Athena (goddess of wisdom, war, the arts and justice), who, enraged by the outrage suffered by her temple, transformed Medusa into a monster with a covered with snakes, whose gaze turned men into stones. When Perseus beheaded Medusa, Pegasus, the winged horse, and Chrysaor, a warrior armed with a sword, magically came out of her neck. Legend has it that Pegasus, having come out of Medusa's neck (for some, from the blood poured onto the ground), had drank at the Pirene spring, on the road that led to the sanctuary of Poseidon, then had flown to Mount Helicon while a race was in progress singing between the muses and the Pierides. Pegasus, moved by the sweetness of the song, had struck, with a lunate hoof, Mount Helicon, which had risen up to the sky and caused Hippocrene, "the horse's spring", to gush forth, from which the Muses would quench their thirst, nourishing their inspiration, to then fly to Olympus singing with a sublime voice.

Thus Pegasus, who had caused the spring of the Muses to flow, became the emblem of creative imagination, poetic fury and inspiration.

Because of his appeal to the creative imagination, we can say that Pegasus is the true witness of the birth of all the Arts.
