KALLIKANTZAROI, THE EVIL SPRITES OF CHRISTMAS

Did you wake up this morning and found your Christmas decorations upside down? Has anyone eaten the cake you had left over in the fridge? If you don't have a mischievous cat or child to blame, you'd better think about the Kallikantzaroi!

Vi siete svegliati stamattina ed avete trovato i vostri addobbi di Natale sottosopra? Qualcuno ha mangiato la torta che avevate avanzato in frigo? Se non avete un gatto o un bambino dispettoso a cui dare la colpa, fareste meglio a pensare ai Kallikantzaroi!

MUSIC AND FOLKLORE: DANCING GREECE

With the recent death of Mikis Theodorakis, a well-known composer, a man with an adventurous life and an important political commitment, Greece hands over to history one of its most representative icons, the sirtaki.

From its first notes, the soundtrack of Zorba the Greek evokes the deep blue of the sea, the sun and the warmth of Greece, inviting you to dance and let yourself be overwhelmed more and more by the joy of dance. Although sirtaki was born only in 1964 and does not represent an authentic component of the Greek tradition, with its invitation to dance it has helped to make people talk about Greece and to make the world fall in love with this land populated not only by gods, sailors and thinkers, but also by passionate dancers.

MUSICA E BALLI POPOLARI: LA GRECIA A PASSO DI DANZA

Con la recente morte di Mikis Theodorakis, conosciutissimo compositore, uomo dalla vita avventurosa e dall’importante impegno politico, la Grecia consegna alla storia una delle sue icone più rappresentative, il sirtaki.

Fin dalle sue prime note, la colonna sonora di Zorba il greco evoca il blu profondo del mare, il sole ed il calore della Grecia, invoglia a ballare e a lasciarsi travolgere sempre più dalla gioia della danza. Pur essendo nato solo nel 1964 e non rappresentando una componente autentica della tradizione greca, con il suo invito al ballo il sirtaki ha contribuito a far parlare di Grecia e a far innamorare il mondo di questa terra popolata non solo da Dei, marinai e pensatori, ma anche da appassionati ballerini.

Shadow theatre is a very popular form of entertainment in Greece on warm summer evenings. The colorful posters with Karagiozis, the main protagonist of these itinerant popular shows, are in all the villages and the little ones enthusiastically participate in the performances amidst laughter, moments of excitement for the adventures of the protagonists and reflections on the topics covered.

Have you ever wondered why kites fly on Clean Monday? And what does Kyra Sarakosti, a typical Orthodox Lent biscuit, represent?

With the Καθαρά Δευτέρα the Carnival ends and a long period of fasting begins. This path of preparation to Easter Sunday is rich in meaning and deeply felt, an opportunity for reflection and change.

Vi siete mai chiesti perché in occasione del Lunedì Pulito si facciano volare gli aquiloni? E cosa rappresenti Kyra Sarakosti, tipico biscotto della Quaresima Ortodossa?  

Con il Καθαρά Δευτέρα finisce il Carnevale ed inizia un lungo periodo di digiuno che terminerà solo con la domenica di Pasqua. Un periodo ricco di significato e molto sentito, un’occasione di riflessione e cambiamento.

Kathari Deftera, or "Clean Monday", is one of the most important holidays in the Greek liturgical calendar and certainly one of our favourites. Growing up in a Catholic country and accustomed to a definitely gloomier and more introspective beginning of Lent, we could not be anything but (pleasantly) surprised by a celebration of reconciliation, regeneration and raising of the spirit characterised instead by outdoor excursions, flights of kites and good shared food.
