Project Description

Claudio Claudiano

via Pietro d’Abano
Abano Terme

Alto colle minor, planis erectior arvis
conspicuo clivus molliter orbe tumet,
ardentis fecundus aquae, quacumque cavernas
perforat, offenso truditur igne latex.
Spirat putre solum, conclusaque subter anhelo
pumice rimosas perforat unda vias.
Umida flammarum regio, Vulcania terrae
ubera sulphureae fervida regna plagae.
Quis sterilem non credat humum? Fumantia vernant
pascua, luxuriat gramine cocta silex,
et, cum sic rigidae cautes fervore liquescant,
contemptis audax ignibus herba viret.

dal  Carmen 26, Aponus
