Greek Culture

I is not possible to appraise Greek Culture a a whole, through a computer screen.
Nevertheless, being aware of the force and the potentialities of new technologies, we tried to squeeze in this program the millennia of artistry, the centuries of outstanding art, the achievements of the human spirit, the routes on which the western civilization strobe in order to reach its current form.
