Untitled[edit]

In this article one can read:

"Under the watchful eye of Mussolini, a new town, Portolago, was created in the 1930s, with its now infamous Italian Rationalist art-deco architecture and streets wide enough for military parading. The Greeks later renamed it Lakki."

Yet in International style (architecture) I found:

"The town of Portolago (now Lakki) in the Greek Dodecanese island of Leros represents some of the most interesting urban planning from the fascist regime in the Dodecanese; an extraordinary examplee of city takeover in the International style known as Italian rationalist. The symbolism of the shapes is reflected with exemplary effectiveness in the buildings of Lakki: the administration building, the metaphysical tower of the market, the cinema-theatre, the Hotel Roma (now Hotel Leros), the church of Saint Francisco and the hospital are fine examples of the style."

Is the first one an objective point of view?


I agree totally with the critic above. The Writer of this article apparently has no idea about modern Architecture. I don't know who in 2006 can still judge the italian rationalism as "infamous": to me this is just a POV, and it should therefore be canceled from the article. alex2006 10:20, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

Leros Mental Institution[edit]

Why isn't the Mental Hospital of Leros mentioned in the article? The hospital is well-known due to the torturing of patients there during thr 80s. Mitsos 11:50, 30 June 2007 (UTC)

I put a sentence in about this; it was removed within a couple of days. Someone appears to be trying to censor this article to prevent it being mentioned. Whoever did that - it's not going to work. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.108.241.233 (talk) 10:34, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Hallo, this is not censorship: you have just to cite the source of your information. This is written in the comment of the Undoing action. Regards, Alex2006 (talk) 05:43, 21 August 2009 (UTC)
