“My memories come from the blue color of the Aegean Sea and sky. This is my paradise on the edge of Mediterranean and it is painted with the silver color of the olive tree, a symbol of peace and civilization, as old as human history. A gift from the gods to the people since the times of Athena and Poseidon, rooted in our past for thousands of years.”- says Ioannis Kampouris, CEO of E-LA-WON.
