What was Santorini like in the 60s? The answer will be given from July 15th to October 30th at the Kastelana Photography Gallery at the entrance of the Kasteli of Pyrgos. In the context of the exhibition entitled “House as small as you can fit and land as far as you can see” will be presented about 50 photographs and drawings, unpublished material from the personal archive of Sasa Ladas, Emeritus Professor of Architecture at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, after her visits to the island in 1968 and 1969.
The images of Sasa Ladas record the settlements and the landscape of the island before its alteration by the rapid development of tourism. The archival material on which the exhibition is based consists of approximately 1,000 photographs and drawings from Pyrgos, Akrotiri, Emporio, Fira, and Oia.
The curators of the exhibition are Alexia Prassa, Stergios Karavatos, Sasa Ladas, and Tonia Nousia, with the co-organization of the Department of Architects of the Polytechnic School of Thessaloniki, the Theran Society of Arts and Sciences, Estia Pyrgos and the Santorini Archive Project.
The opening of the exhibition will take place on Saturday 15/7, at 20:00.
The exhibition will last until 30/10 and will be open daily from 10:00 to 22:00. The entrance is free.
