Athens, the Whiteness of the Goddess URL:
The year 429 BC marks with the death of Pericles the end of a generation, of a "century" that the Athenians devoted to consecrating their own glory, and the glory of their goddess Athena. With the wish of reinsuring their Olympian status after the damages caused by the Persians in the Acropolis, they built with the remains of fallen buildings, amazing statutes and monuments in her honor: works that where immediately "classic", and became models for the Greeks and Romans. It is worth nowadays to recall the goddess in the different effigies, to analyze the white temples that were projected for her, and to seek the keys of the most ambitious of them all: the Parthenon.
