STAVROS MELISSINOS
"THE POET SANDAL-MAKER OF ATHENS"
A crossroad of poetry, art and home of the ancient craftsmanship of sandal-making.

Take away the Glories and the Honours
The granite palaces of this vain world
And only give me the smile of Pain the tear of Joy
And I will erect a thousand palaces in me in which to live.
S. Melissinos (Athenian Rubaiyat)
