When technology meets ancient greek art for educational purposes! (Video)

Greek Toys

A wonderful journey of Greektoys in South Italy together with Encardia!

A 6-minute animation video with live action teaches children the charm of greek civilization with a journey to the greek-speaking villages of South Italy (Magna Graecia).

Greektoys and Encardia present Aesop’s fable “The fox and the crow” in grico language (dialect of South Italy). Grico is a language which derives from Greek and it is in danger of extinction. This video aims to teach children about the continuation of greek cultural elements from ancient times till today.
