The prized possession

The New Fortress is “new” because it was the second defensive complex built by the Venetians to protect the town of Corfu [the first was the Old Fortress]. From 1386, Corfu was among the most prized possessions of the Republic of Venice, which spared no expense to shield it from the rapacious Ottomans. The New Fortress was built between 1576 and 1645 on a hill overlooking the town. It was designed by the Italian military engineer Ferrante Vitelli (circa 1550-1584).

Leonidas Argyros

A grumpy man with a PhD. He is fascinated by words; when he sees them forming beautiful sentences he feels like an apprentice wizard who just produced fancy potions out of cauldrons full of frog legs and tears of bats. In his spare time he roams about town or watches anything produced and narrated by Sir David Attenborough, an inexhaustible source of similes. In Canada, he learned to love the cold, but he is much happier working in Athens.
