PIRAEUS AND MARINAS
The composer Hatzidakis, with the voice of the unforgettable Melina Merkouri, talked about "The children of Piraeus", in the Oscar winner "Never on Sunday" by director Zyel Dassen.
There is something about Piraeus that always refers to a desirable cunning, a bullying way of facing life. Maybe, it is its straightforward citizens, maybe the refugee population, Piraeus and the surrounding municipalities, maybe simply the sea and the association with the sea-beaten sailors.
For sure, the history of the Athenian seaport, usually interwoven with the history of Athens, but occasionally separated, forms a puzzle that gives us the picture of modern-day Piraeus.
