20:00 Veggera | KAPI of the Municipality of Paros
A typical veggera (visit) in the KAPI kafenion with the local musicians: Manolis Delendas - violin, Fanouris Petropoulos - lute, Antonia Nika - vocals
The building that today houses KAPI (the Community Centre for Elders) was donated by Nicholas Mavrogenis in 1782 to the community of Paros. As the patron dictated in his donation, the building should not change in use. It should always remain a cafe.
Older Parians remember it as the "the Grand Cafe" or "the Communal," frequented by the "lords" of the island and their ladies. Since then, the society of Paros has changed a lot... Today the cafe of Mavrogenis is a lively meeting place for elderly locals.
This "Veggera" - visit in today's KAPI by Paros Festival, aspires to actively involve its members in the social life as well as the Festival.
Veggera (f) greek. Salon; a late evening visit and gathering in a home or outdoors for amusement and getting together, where drinks, pastries and food are offered. Soirée. [etym. > Italian. veggheria <post.lat. vigulare <vigul / vigil "vigilant, watchman"]

directed by Zacharias Mavroidis (2018) | 84 '
Every year, on July 31st, Mrs. Irene and the rest remaining “fifteeners” return to the obsolete Monastery of the Accession, on Therasia, the little known sister-island of cosmopolitan Santorini. For two weeks, they pray for eternal rest of their beloved ones, while preparing the church for the day of the Accession. In between, they recall the past gazing at the tourist traffic across the volcanic bay. “Across her body” documents the fading tradition of “Fifteen’ correlating three bodies: the sacred body of the Virgin Mary, the deserted body of the once upon a time fertile Therasia and the aging female bodies of the fifteeners.
