Very rare execution of a celebratory composition dedicated to the Duke Farnese, which weaves mythology and territory (The river Po). The story sees the Po River as protagonists, intent on calming the dispute between Hymenaeus (protector of the marriage rite) and Citerea (Aphrodite) for supremacy over what is “true love”, precisely between that expressed in the depth of conjugal love or in the superficiality of the love of beauty. At the end, Hymeneus and Citerea come to a happy accordance.
