Shipbuilding zone of Perama, Piraeus - Decline and abandonment
Saturday, 12 February 2011
In Perama, Piraeus, lies a degraded shipbuilding zone, home to a couple thousand workers. Their job is hard and perilous and as a result lives have been lost. The trade unions of the area are very powerful and they don't allow the slightest violation of labour legislation by the employers' side. They would rather starve to death than lose the rights they obtained after sacrifices. The shipbuilding zone of Perama is interesting only to photographers -a “grey” place of sunken faces and half-sunken hulls dying in the filthy waters.
ADD A COMMENT
A historical village of Gortynia in the forest of Mainalon, the Arcadian mountain, with traditional houses made of stones.
Exciting landscapes with vertical coasts to the Aegean Sea, severe weather conditions, deep and spotless waters.
In Nicosia, Cyprus there is a traditional patisserie next to the fortification sacks and barrels that separate the free from the occupied part of the city.
Huge installations that reach the altitude of 2,260m and giant lifts, which lead to 23 slopes totaling 34km.
Families with children and elderly citizens reaffirmed their love for Macedonia and were taught about national reconciliation by Mikis Theodorakis.
Winter is harsh in the villages of Arcadian Mount Mainalon. The dense forests of firs sigh by the weight of the snow and the sceneries are alpic. These villages during almost all winter are covered by deep clouds.
The "Stavros Niarhos" Cultural Center enchants numerous visitors. The "heart" of the center is the amazing building of architect Renzo Piano. The complex is surrounded by a huge garden and a water canal for sailboats.
The view from the temple is breathtaking. From hear, Theseus began his journey to Crete in order to kill the Minotaur. From hear also, his father, Aegeus, fell to his death from the cliffs thinking his son had been killed. In honor of the fallen king the sea was named the Aegean.
