Live in Athens   the capital of Greece, a modern, safe and lively European city. Its history goes back to 3,200 B.C. Athens had been the Centre of Knowledge, Philosophy and Arts (music, dance, sculpture, ancient drama, architecture, poetry) and the birthplace of Democracy. It is the city where Socrates, Plato, Phidias, Terpander, Pericles and Goddess Athena have lived. The Parthenon, one of the most famous architectural wonders of the world sticks out in the center of the city on the Acropolis rock.

Love the Art of Mosaic   the technique of surface coating with usually small natural stones or glass paste, which are glued in a suitably shaped substrate plaster, thus creating elaborately decorated surfaces. Τhe oldest surviving mosaics are detected in the East Mediterranean area, and in particular at Asia Minor, about 8th century B.C. The Romans, from the 1th century B.C. and onwards were the first who used mosaics in pedestrianization and in construction of arches and walls.
