Santorini will never stop being a source of inspiration. Perpetually changing, grand, imperious, it challenges every generation to “confront” this phenomenon which is way above human measures. It will remain unpredictable and untamed forever…Famous poets and novelists have been inspired by Santorini. Such as George Seferis, Odysseus Elytis, Elias Venezis, I. M. Panagiotopoulos, Tassos Athanassiadis and others, who have described this unique place in their unique way. The island has also inspired important painters such as Nikolaos Hadjikyriakos-Gikas, Paris Prekas, Petros Zoumboulakis, Christophoros Asimis, Zoe Alafouzou, Mark Venios, Anna Mendrinou, Diana Antonakatou. The settlements of the caldera have been studied and admired by architects such as Le Corbusier, Savvas Kontaratos, Ioannis Kovanoudis and others.
