Additional Information

Natassa Pappa, graphic designer, founder and author of the city guide Into Stoas-Athens Walkthrough believes that the arcades are the most hidden aspect of the modern city of Athens, a back-stage labyrinth full of stories; some even call it the city’s unconscious. 
In this walking lecture of urban Athens, she connects the exits by following the old often overlooked exit signs and takes you on a trip through the most interesting passageways in the heart of Athens.
The lecture analyzes the vernacular visual communication in the intermediate of the urban fabric, the characteristics of the arcades and the manner in which people navigate and experience the city. During the 2-hour walk, participants will have the opportunity to explore these hidden pathways and follow the history of the city’s commercial activity through unique professional classes which do not survive elsewhere.
