Despoina Giannouli for "Angelos & Lito" Performance

The Katakouzenos House preserves the spirit and intentions of people who deeply influenced Hellenic identity in the 20th century. Its importance lies not only on its collection of paintings, books and furniture. It is the spirit of the people that have inhabited it, its invisible side that makes it so important.Leto Katakouzenou showing foreign  friends around the temple of Poseidon in Sounio, near Athens, in the 1940s.

Some of the residents of the Taverna was great greek artists like Kapralos, Kazantzakis and Moralis that they produced part of their artistic work living in Aegina and visiting Taverna daily.
