In spite of the first impression of an impersonal concrete city that Larissa gives, the patient itinerant finds out that it has preserved some tesserae from all the periods of its history: they represent islets of quality in the everyday life as well as a pole of attraction for the visitors of Larissa. Among them a wine shop of the early twentieth century still stands intact and operates as a restaurant thanks to the painstaking efforts of a local association. The Greek public opinion and our fellow citizens usually downgrade the very serious issue of respecting and preserving the cultural heritage of our country, and in particular that of the recent past. The case of Nikodemos’ wine shop in Larissa and its successful management for twenty years now by a local association presents an interesting model for the preservation of an historic monument of a city by its conscious of the past and appreciative citizens.
