Abstract

Rigas’ Charta becomes the starting point of a fun game of riddles, deciphering, painting, and history. Attending the programme, you will have the opportunity to discover the secrets of a map created for the outbreak of the 1821 Revolution … Taking as their starting point a copy of the Charta of Greece found at the Onassis Library, students will solve riddles and decipher the messages that Rigas wished to give to the Greeks under Ottoman rule. Get ready to journey through the map, following a route full of unknown stories about coins, ancient monuments, historic battles, mythical heroes, kings and philosophers. Drawing inspiration from them, you will then create your own meaningful symbols.
