Cosmic and Ecclesiastical Βuildings by the Kaimakli artisans by Kalliopi Protopapa

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, most residents in Kaimakli were working in the building sector and were known for their skill of carving the stone. Interesting is the cosmic architecture in Kaimakli, where agricultural houses with warehouses and many auxiliary rooms and houses of urban architecture are located. The neoclassical line followed by one of the first educated architects, Photiades, is perfectly suited to the Kaimakli’s craftsmen. Major buildings of the capital are works by Kaimakli artisans, but samples of their work are also found in location.

Amikeco Puppet Show

Using the puppet as one of the most extraordinary theatrical instruments, we travel to a sweet and nostalgic world, where Amikeco, a protagonist, demonstrates the power of love and the value of true friendship.

The name Amikeco derives from Esperanto, the most widely used international language created to harmonize the different peoples of the world. In this unique language, amikeco means friendship.
Following Esperanto's noble conception of intercultural communication among the people of all nations, the performance "Amikeco" exclusively uses music.
