when Architecture tells us a story

We all have the image of white houses on the Cyclades islands, in Greece. Of cubic shape, with a roof bring down, walls painted in the lime, the blue shutters...
This architecture is appropriate for this region,
which, crushed by sun in summer, and having winters quiet hot, does not need a sloping roof. Each region has its own style of architecture, which corresponds to the needs of the inhabitants, but also which tells the past:
The invaders, the migrants, the political systems (ah the warm and creative style of the communist strutures!). And as every country has several regions... It is sometimes enough to raise the nose on a balcony during a walk, to have a whole piece of history opening in front of us.
