WHO IS DEDALO

Dedalo is a character from Greek mythology. A great architect, sculptor and inventor, he is best known for being the builder of the famous Minotaur labyrinth in Crete, the Labyrinth of Knossos.

The legend tells that Dedalo built the labyrinth at the request of Minos, who wanted to lock up the Minotaur, born from the betrayal of the wife of Minos with a bull. Being aware of the structure of the labyrinth, when Dedalo finished his work there he was locked up with his son Icarus. But he did not give up. He prepared wings for him and his son, to be glued to the back with wax. Unfortunately, during the escape Icaro came too close to the sun and the heat melted the wax, causing it to fall into the sea.

Dedalo fled to Sicily and then, once definitively defeated Minos who had found him, he took refuge in Sardinia.

HISTORY OF THE LABYRINTH OF DEDALO

The Knossos labyrinth is a tangle of streets, rooms and galleries. When Minos wanted revenge on Athens for the murder of his son, he decided that every nine years seven boys and seven girls must arrive from Athens to Crete to be fed to the Minotaur, who ate human flesh.

One day Theseus, Aegeus’ son, offered to kill the monster. When the young man arrived in Crete, Arianna, the daughter of Minos, fell in love with him and helped him find his way by giving him a red ball that, unrolled, would allow him to follow his tracks backwards. Theseus found the Minotaur, killed him and led the other Athenian boys out of the labyrinth, thanks to the thread that Arianna.

Theseus returned home, but forgot to replace the black sail with the white one that symbolized victory. The father, seeing the black sail on the horizon, threw himself into the sea killing himself, in the sea which today is called precisely Aegean Sea.
