Athens at night reveals a mesmerizing spectacle that stems from a visionary effort initiated by the great politician of the 80s, Melina Merkouri. Her ambitious vision of illuminating the ancient architecture and 19th-century buildings of Greece’s capital became a resounding success, leading to a nationwide project.
