  • [01] Athens World Poetry Festival

    ANA/MPA---The Poets' Circle will hold the 2nd Athens World Poetry Festival, from September 21 to September 26, at the Garden of the Athens Concert Hall.

    50 poets from 21 different countries will take part in the festival. Greece will be represented by Nanos Valaoritis, Titos Patrikios, Kiki Dimoula, Evgenios Aranitsis, Giannis Dallas, Dimitra Christodoulou and Kostas Stergiopoulos. Poets from other countries such as Adonis, Carolyn Forch, Rikardo Areggi, Gerhard Falkner and Fernando Rendon will also participate.

    "The continuous and public communication of poetry with the wider public is one of the main goals," according to the Poets' Circle.

    During the next few days, poetry will travel everywhere through fifteen events to be held in cultural centres of various municipalities around Athens, such as bookstores, cafes and bars, galleries, public squares and even prisons. Poetry will meet the "simple man" in his every day life, to show its presence, in the difficult times we are experiencing.

    [02] Tornado hits Kalamata causing serious damages

    ANA/MPA---A tornado hit Kalamata on Monday morning causing serious damages to houses, shops, gardens and a cemetery.

    "This tornado was a morning devil. During its passage it dragged trucks, cars, roofs of factories, power poles, heavy machineries; it destroyed shop windows and uprooted trees," the mayor of the city Panagiotis Nikas told ANA-MPA.

    Major damages and problems were also caused by the tornado in the prefecture of Lakonia. It ripped off roofs from houses, overturnedcars, uprooted trees and destroyed stores. Public Power Corporation (PPC) employees are restoring the damage caused by the bad weather and the blackouts. Four people were slightly injured and transferred in a nearby health center.

    [03] Greece to participate in Anuga food fair in Cologne

    "Greece will be once again among the top ten most powerful foreign participations in the largest and most important fair of food and beverages in the world," the German-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce and Industry said in a statement regarding Greece's participation in Anuga trade fair.

    The food fair will be held in Cologne from 10 to 14 October 2015 with the participation of 270 exhibitors, in an area of 5,000 square meters and Greece as the honored country.

    Greece aims at the promotion of its exports and the establishment of contacts with international trade partners. Apart from its traditional products, Greece will present high quality raw materials as well as semi-finished products with high demand from the food and beverage industry worldwide. These products include olive oil, olives, dairy, alcoholic beverages, water, honey, sandwiches, sweets and snacks, dried fruits, spices and herbs, frozen foods and organic products.
