My grandfather

My grandfather, Georgios Finos, from 1950 to 1953 studied at the technical school of Georgios Stavros in Ioannina and lived in the facilities of the school opposite the Church of Agios Nikolaos Kopanos in Ioannina. There lived destitute and orphaned children and they were taught traditional arts such as carpentry, wood carving, marble carving and stone building by the architect Simoulis, the builder Vlachas and other craftsmen, while Father Sebastian taught other religious subjects. They took part in the parades of Ioannina and did an internship at the house of Georgios Stavros on Anexartisias Street opposite the Yali Cafe.
