Historical Walk in the Two Centuries of the New Greek State
The National Archaeological Museum
Patision 44, Athens
29 May 2022
Could one tell the history of our country in one single part of Athens? Could one include in an hour and a half – the length of an average fiction film – the story of a plot of land that two centuries ago was a vineyard, then became a club for Bavarian soldiers, the site of the largest museum of the ancient world, the site of the agonizing concealment of antiquities in the midst of war, the emblematic site of the National Resistance during the Occupation, a witness to the student uprising of the Technical University, an ark of endless exhibitions and once again an invisible vineyard?
Could one imagine how such a small part of the heart of Athens could witness the birth and adventures of a whole country?
