This paper aims to obtain a lot of readers of Aristophanes'works, Lysistrata, above all. This piece offers many historical, social, political, mythical and religious data. The main character is, in fact, the first aristophanic heroin. The relation between ancient comedy and political life is permanent, incessant: Athenian women, tired of the war against the Lacedemons, decide to make peace in a peculiar way: abstinence of sexual intercourse with their lovers and absence of family duties. Comic utopy is everywhere.
