P11 ACTIVITY – GENIKO LIKIO HORTIATI
P11. Attending the theatrical performance “Eptapyrgio – A Century in a Day 1899-1989”
On July 17, 2019, the pupils of the Erasmus+ project of our school and Ms. Maria Mangana attended the theatrical performance “Eptapyrgio – A Century in a Day 1899-1989” in the framework of the 1st Eptapyrgio Festival. A theatrical narrative of Eptapyrgio, a place with powerful memories of many centuries, forming part of the history of Thessaloniki. Actors and musicians from the National Theatre of Northern Greece took us on a track of the history of Eptapyrio, from 1899 to 1989, through human stories with sighs, music, pains and joys, strange and tender. A journey from darkness to light. Because no matter how tall the walls are, the sky is always open….
The 1st Eptapyrgio Festival was organized by the Cultural Center of the Region of Central Macedonia in collaboration with the Ephorate of Antiquities of Thessaloniki under the auspices of UNESCO. The Eptapyrgio Festival is a cultural continuation of the activities of the Cultural Center of the Region of Central Macedonia in historical sites, incorporating the monuments of Thessaloniki into the daily lives of the citizens, so that they are used not only as museum sites but also as living spaces of culture and spirit.
