The excellent book by Angeliki Markou, "Nafplio in the 19th Century - Testimonies and Witnessed Facts from Local Printed Media", published by the Argolic Archive Library of History and Culture, will be presented in Nafplio on Sunday, September 24th 2023, in the courtyard of the Nafplio Annex of the National Gallery - Alexandros Soutsos Museum.

An in-depth study by Angeliki Markou, aiming to highlight the local history of the 19th century without chronological limitations that hinder the understanding of connections between historical events. The often thematic analysis of Nafplio's history delves into individuals and situations but cannot clearly demonstrate how each period influenced the actions of subsequent generations...
The 432-page study of the entire century through the utilization of the Nafplio press as a primary historical source offers the possibility of reconstructing Nafplio under a different perspective. Through the testimonies of the contributors, the collective perception of the city regarding its history is exposed. It represents the memory of those who played a role, as recorded in the consciousness of the residents...
The wealth of material and topics included in this volume explores various aspects of the city of Nafplio, such as self-governance, education, judicial authority, military structures, the press, cultural characteristics and cultural events, infrastructure, areas of economic activity (agriculture), industry and commerce, aiming for a broader recognition of the elements that constituted Nafplio's identity in different periods of local history...
