Abstract

The Echo of Cyprus 1821-2021, in collaboration with important national, social and cultural institutions, organises a series of events, lectures and conferences to highlight the bicentenary of the national regeneration. The purpose of the lectures is to highlight the contribution of Cyprus to the struggle, as an integral part of Hellenism, as well as to highlight the bicentenary of the 1821 Revolution, as an occasion for national reconstruction and redefining of our course and our historical continuity, as well as paying tribute to those who shed their blood on the altar of the freedom of the nation. The first speaker refers to Kanaris’s visit to Lapithos through a painting, as famous painters were inspired by the Greek Revolution and captured important events in their works in order to awaken consciences. The second speaker mentions rumours and traditions about the various dates of Kanaris’ arrival in Cyprus, as there were no official sources, only oral testimonies.
