Parthenope is the siren related to the many ancient myths, including the homeric episode with Odysseus and the foundation of the city of Naples. This 5 minute video explores the places where the original legend was formed, and portrays the siren both in her mythical multi-millennial origin, and in her symbolic role in today's contemporary neapolitan metropolis.
