24.03.04: Icaria listing

"The House of the Scorpions" Drawing by Mikis Theodorakis 1947


The farmhouse on Icaria where composer Mikis Theodorakis was exiled during the Civil War is now a listed building, according to a decision by the Aegean Ministry’s environmental office which was made public yesterday. The decision followed a campaign by island residents, who were backed by the prefectural authorities of neighboring Samos. Authorities are now aiming to secure Culture Ministry funding for the restoration of the farmhouse, which is located in the island’s Vrakades district.
