~ The white colour in Santorini ~

~ by katherine & anastasios ~

The white colour embedded in the plaster of old ruins remind us of the era before the widespread whitewashed surfaces of today .
It was imposed as a common Greek vernacular trademark and it characterizes all the Cyclades .
The frequent use of white in the buildings is an attribute that originated as a cheap method for disinfecting and sun protection .
Also , the necessity for protection , from all kinds of plague that submerged the older seasons the world ( cholera , typhus , etc ) made them use the white colour .
Today , especially in Santorini , the white colour , comes in admirer opposition with blacks and rugged rocks that frame the island , causing unusual awe and tenderness , greatness and beauty feelings .
