Abstract

What do we know today about 1821? And what will millennials feel about the revolution and tell their own children? Stories of people, our history. Battles in the mountains and the seas, battles in words, in the texts of those who lived or dealt with the revolution. A “battle” in today’s square, in front of the statue of Kolokotronis. Where the conversations about 1821 of an old homeless man struggle against oblivion and national stereotypes, interpretations of history, its silences. Where the battles, through these narratives, come to life in front of the surprised eyes of a young girl. Everyone is here. Heroes and antiheroes. Rumelians and Moreans, kodjabashis, phanariotes, shipowners, philhellenes and chieftains, the Great Powers, Ottoman firmans, Albanian yatagans, Egyptian bayonets.
