(GREEK NEWS AGENDA) Nikos Kazantzakis, one of the most important and translated writers and philosophers of the 20th century settled in Antibes on the Côte d’Azur in June 1948. Reminding him of Greece, Antibes became a place of inspiration for the writer, as it was there that he wrote almost all of his famous novels, which earned him worldwide fame. Antibes’ local authorities have renovated Kazantzakis’ house in the old town near the famed seawall and they have also rechristened one of its squares in the writer’s name. As of recently, Kazantzakis’s house is being used in the “service” of artists. The latter may use the premises gratis for a period of six months with the precondition to donate one of their works to the town. For more information about this initiative, artists may visit the Town Hall of Antibes’ website.
