The year is 1816.
Up in the Swiss mountains Lord Byron rents Villa Diodati,
to spend time with his friend John Polidori.
Among his guests are Mary Shelley, Percy Shelley and Clare Clairmont.
While outside the storms tortures the old walls of the villa, inside by the fireplace the guests dare each other
to put their most frightening nightmares to paper. In this inspiring environment the classics of the Gothic genre were born;
Mary Shelley's 'Frankenstein' and Polidori's 'The Vampyre', to name but a few.
Now, 190 years later, in our modern villa, with a dance room and a salon, we'll evoke the creative spirits of the past.
This is a call to all of you artistically engaged, to come together this night.
Be part of this tradition and..let's create art!
