    The Persians

    The anti-​military play by Aeschylus is the first tragedy that draws its subject matter from historical evens, as it deals with the Persians’ agony, when they are about their striking defeat in Salamina. Despite the fact that it constitutes an implicit praise to the Greek spirit that demolished the Asian troops, the theme is given in a unique way, from the point of view of the defeated. Not a single Greek name is mentioned in the tragedy. The Persians is a timeless tragedy, addressing universal issues and unchangeable values, and examining in a fascinating way the themes of hybris, the human arrogance and dignity, and the freedom of man. A timeless moral on the strong will of each and every tyrant that, historically speaking, has brought the war and human pain.
    Troades (The Trojan Women)

Urban

Hot town, summer in the city Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty Been down, isn’t it a pity Doesn’t seem to be a shadow in the city The lyrics are twisting in my mind while I’m walking in the almost empty street. Sunday mid-​August and the city is…

Eye of the storm

Diving deep, diving deep in the blue sea. The sense of freedom that surrounds your body and the lack of gravity that exist make you feel free. Calendar shows 21st of June the first day of summer. The sky has dark purple color with clouds of rain ready…

Ερειπωμένοι τοίχοι. Εγκατάλειψη. Περασμένες μορφές κυκλοφορούνε αδιάφορα Χρόνος παλιός χωρίς υπόσταση Τίποτα πια δε θ’ αλλάξει δω μέσα. Είναι μια ήρεμη σιωπή μην περιμένεις απάντηση Κάποια νύχτα μαρτιάτικη χωρίς επιστροφή Χωρίς νιότη, χωρίς έρωτα, χωρίς έπαρση περιττή. Κάθε Μάρτη αρχίζει μιαν Άνοιξη. Το βιβλίο σημαδεμένο στη σελίδα 16 Το πρόγραμμα της συναυλίας για την άλλη Κυριακή. Μ. Αναγνωστάκης

Nafplio

Nafplio is a small town in Peloponnese, Greece. The name is the remnant of the old venetian name Napoli di Romania, from the greek “nea poli”=“new town” of Romania, the name of the area during the late byzantine times. Nafplio was the second capital of newly formed Greece after Mesologgi until the capital eventually became Athens. It is an historical city due to its meaning to the Greek Revolution. It has a fantastic centre with small neoclassical historical houses, squares and churches. Nowadays, when taking a walk in the picturesque alleys of the Old Town, visitors are drawn by the venetian balconies and the wonderful neoclassical buildings and mansions, images that bring feelings of sweet nostalgia. The major reference point of the old town is Syntagma sq., a very large square, where the Venetians held their headquarters at old times.
