Il Parlamento ellenico si trova nel vecchio Palazzo Reale, un imponente edificio minimalista, che domina la Piazza Syntagma ad Atene, costruito tra il 1836 e il 1843 per volere di Ottone I di Baviera, su progetto dell'architetto bavarese Von Gaertner.
E' uno degli edifici più importanti in assoluto di tutta la Grecia, centro politico, sociale e culturale del paese.
La piazza e il palazzo che la sovrasta formano un effetto di grande prestigio in una città che vive fondamentalmente dei grandi reperti storici classici.
Sotto l'imponente facciata dell'ex palazzo del Re, ai piedi della scalinata che porta al colonnato di ingresso, v'è il Monumento al Milite Ignoto, sorvegliato dagli "Evzones", le guardie d'onore presidenziali, in costume tradizionale greco.
Quello del "cambio della guardia" è sicuramente uno dei cerimoniali più noti, un rito meticoloso eseguito con estrema precisione e rigore.
Allo scoccare di ogni ora gli statuari Evzones marciano fino al Parlamento, dove si svolge la cerimonia ufficiale: i gendarmi, nei loro passi cadenzati e meccanici, in uniforme ispirata ai guerrieri delle montagne che combatterono durante la guerra di indipendenza, con gonnellino e scarpe con pom-pom, danno vita ad uno spettacolo a dir poco pittoresco.
Indosso il soprabito per eccellenza, il capospalla più evergreen che di tendenza, sempre classico, eternamente di moda, protagonista indiscusso delle mezze stagioni: il trench coat.
Io l'ho scelto rosso, assolutamente eye-catching, per una visita al palazzo che fa da sfondo alla vita politica della capitale greca.

(Questo è il mio ultimo post da Atene, clicca qui se ti sei perso tutti i precedenti articoli).

The Hellenic Parliament is located in the Old Royal Palace, overlooking Syntagma Square in Athens.
It was erected in 1836 as the house of King Otto, at the hill of Boubounistra to face the Acropolis, on the design by the Bavarian architect Friedrich von Gaertner and the works lasted for 7 years. 
The history of the building of the Greek Parliament is related to the history of the modern Greek state. 
An impressive yet simple building. The building is ornamented with marble and carved designs, reminiscent of the tradition indigenous to ancient Greece. A dominating structure that prevails through the beautiful garden surrounding it. Just as ancient Greeks preferred to construct their buildings.  
The imposing, minimalist structure is now home to the Hellenic Parliament, which is guarded by the proud corps of Evzones, in traditional Greek costume.
Every half an hour, they engage in a disciplined and proud ceremonial pacing, paying all due respect to the monument of Unknown Soldier.
The Changing the Guard at the Tomb has become a popular tourist attraction in Athens, a meticulous rite performed with extreme precision and rigor.
I'm wearing the overcoat par excellence, the evergreen piece, always trendy, classic, elegant, eternally fashionable, the undisputed protagonist of the mid-seasons: the trench coat.
I chose it in red, absolutely eye-catching, for a visit to the palace that is the backdrop to the political life of the Greek capital.
