Greek art has undergone its ups and downs throughout history, starting from the golden era of ancient Greece, evolving towards the byzantine period, marked by early Christianity, taking a dive into traditional craftsmanship...
Many things can be told about the history, the municipal organization, the landmarks and the entertainment in Athens. We don’t like to deliver old news. So here’s a fresh look.
Athens has a lot of different sides to it. The maze of shops, old and new, hit by the crisis and not as polished as you’d wish, may look shabby to some. The city center, hosting a few of the immigrant communities thanks to low rent cost and job availability can seem a bit erratic.
It’s a city that was oppressed and divided. A city where hard times inspired and fueled the artists, the alternative voices, the hidden culture. Where innovation became a necessity in design, circular economy or recycling.
Can you imagine a museum in which the entrance is free? In which you can speak as loudly as you want, drink and eat whatever you want? A museum that never closes its doors? Oh, that would be awesome if it was real…
In Athens you are not going to miss two things: food and history. Both of them are everywhere. Both of them are precious, but not expensive.
