Angelos Sikelianos, the poet of the Delphic Idea.

Undergraduate and postgraduate students (University of Patras) will present their research on the uninvestigated aspects of the work of Angelos Sikelianos, the visionary of the Delphic Idea, who fertilized with his major lyricism the work of later authors and poets of the 1930s (Elytis, Emperikos, Karagatsis, etc).

In the framework of the two-day meeting, Katerina Hatzi will showcase her artworks based on well-known Greek poets and authors.
