First walk of 2016..

Good morning people..!

First of all HAPPY NEW YEAR!! 2 years ago we were saying goodbye to 2013 from Mount Parnitha and the Mpafi shelter,  this time we decided to welcome 2016 from the Flampouri shelter and a totally different point of view of Athens!

Around Thessaly..

Goodmorning and have a nice week people!

Last week I was at my grandpa’s village, situated on the foot of Mount Olympus, remember..?

Before that we visited the beautiful village of Anatoli, the most mountainous village of Kissavos on altitude of 960 meters and 42 kilometers away from Larissa.

Goodmorning Florence..!

Happy 2nd anniversary..!

IMG_7745_Snapseed

Hi everyone! I just realised that Urbanzip is 2 years old..!

The past 6 months we didn’t post as frequently as in the past, but this “neverending” transitional period makes it almost impossible to dedicate the time we would have liked.. So today i’m posting some pics from a beautiful stroll two days ago in the center of Athens, while I was searching urban planning material for my thesis. Looking forward to my graduation, than i’ll have all the time to explore my colourful city!

Happy anniversary!

Thanks to Nikos for the photo of me above!

Chickpeas..

IMG_6496_Snapseed

Lunch time! What are you cooking? I’m eating again the delicious chickpeas we cooked yesterday with Nikos! A really simple recipe, excluding the part where you have to “remember” to put them in the water from the night before.. I always forget that part!

First we boiled the chickpeas and then we cooked it in the oven, in a hull where we also added onions, fresh oregano from the garden, garlic and spinach leaves. After almost an hour it’s ready and you can add the lemon juice! Bon appetit!

By the sea..

All these years in Florence the thing I missed the most is definitely the sea. So now I’m back to Greece and finally sooooo close to the sea!
Today I spent the whole day swimming (first swim for this year) and finally dinning in a simple and wonderful place by the sea. Goodnight everyone!

“Unofficial” Goodbye..

The time has come.. I just left my house in Florence and I’m on my way to Ancona and then to my hometown, Athens.

20140722-071225-25945107.jpg

This change will be really difficult at first. Of course I’ll miss this amazing city and all the people I’m leaving behind. This is an unofficial goodbye not only because I’m coming back soon for my thesis, but because I intend to visit really often! So beware!
Below some photos from this last week in Florence. Have a nice day people!

Battistero dressed in Pucci..

20140617-172846-62926698.jpg

It’s been a few months that the baptistery is under construction. Some days ago passing from Piazza Duomo i’ve seen this new look which is totally amazing! So today I passed again and I took some photos with my phone. Enjoy!

Emilio Pucci “dresses” the Baptistery of San Giovanni with the colours and graphics of the Battistero scarf, reinterpreting its façades and becoming a sponsor of the restoration of the building that truly represents the historical-artistic heritage of Florence, dedicated to San Giovanni Battista, the patron saint of the Florence, which stands opposite the Duomo of Santa Maria del Fiore in Piazza San Giovanni.

During the celebrations held on the occasion of Pitti Immagine Uomo from the 17th to 20th of June in Florence, visitors will be able to admire the art installation inspired by the Battistero scarf designed by Emilio Pucci in 1957 which shows a view from above the Piazza San Giovanni interpreted in vibrant lemon yellow, orange, fuchsia and Emilio pink.
The Apse side of the Baptistery will be clad in a giant size portrayal of the original framed scarf. The other seven sides of the octagonal building will be restyled à la Emilio Pucci; the monument will thus be clothed with eight printed sheets over 2000 sqm.
This very special scarf signifies the link of Emilio Pucci with Florence, a key reference point for the Maison.
An inauguration cocktail in honour of the art installation will be held on Tuesday June 17th at Palazzo Pucci where the Maison invites visitors to discover the drawing and printing techniques of the scarf through a special experience entitles Design the Dream, celebrating the savoir-faire of the House.
On the occasion of this special event, Emilio Pucci will open its archives to all visitors.
Design the Dream will then continue for a further three days, from Wednesday 18th to Friday 20th June, at the Boutique Emilio Pucci in Florence, to offer customers too the chance to assist to the creation of the historical Battistero scarf, available in several colours at the store. (source)
