The myth of the phoenix
The Phoenix, also known as bird of fire, is a mythological bird known for being reborn from the ashes after its death.The Egyptians were the first who mentioned this bird, with the name Bennu. They described the bird as a sparrow reborn from the waters, associated with the Sun, a deity whose emblem was the solar disk.
However, the current image of the Phoenix derives from the Greek culture: a golden eagle with splendid and colorful plumage (gold, purple, pink, blue) and a long feathered tail, rising from its ashes.
Thw word Phoenix derives from the Greek Phòinix, meaning ” purple-red, since in the tradition of ancient myths it was often depicted as a fiery bird. The Phoenix, as symbol, is found in different cultures, but in spite of different names and descriptions it does not change what it represents: rebirth and the immortality of the spirit.
Your home.. away from home
Foresteria Lombarda Villa Fenix is much more than a guesthouse. It is a place where you can feel at ease, without giving up the pleasure of a “starry” treatment at affordable prices… just like home.
A place of joy and rebirth: this is what Villa Fenix wants to be. It is no coincidence that the name recalls the ancient myth of the Phoenix, a mythological animal that is reborn from its ashes, a symbol of hope and renewal.
As the Latin poet Ovid says in “Metamorphoses,” ” The Phoenix does not live on seeds and herbs, but on drops of incense, and the sap of the cardamom plant. When it has lived for five centuries, it then builds a nest for itself in the topmost branches of a swaying palm tree, using only its beak and talons. As soon as it has lined it with cassia bark, and smooth spikes of nard, cinnamon fragments and yellow myrrh, it settles on top, and ends its life among the perfumes. They say that, from the father’s body, a young phoenix is reborn, destined to live the same number of years.”
