It was one of the first projects that saw the birth of the concerns and dreams of the “Porteña de Mazatlán.

She toured several places in the city of Mazatlan, such as Area 352, Mambo Café, among others. Each project that emerged had a name from the more than 200 Cyclades Islands located in the sea of Greece.

A bit of his mythology, the other side of magic:

Each island has its history and mythology. We will focus on talking about the ones we have visited, which are the Cyclades, including Santorini, Mykonos and Naxos.
Legend has it that Mykonos was the scene of the battle between Hercules and the giants, Hercules won and the giants were petrified becoming what is now the island. According to another version it was Poseidon who killed the giants. In addition, it is said that the island was named after the hero «Mykono». According to Greek mythology, he was the son of Apollo and means «Island of Light» in honor of his luminous progenitor.
Very close to Mykonos, less than half an hour’s navigation, is the sacred island of Delos. This small island of 3.5 km² was for centuries a place of pilgrimage, since it is said that it was there that Letos gave birth to the very twins Artemis, goddess of the Moon and Apollo, god of the Sun. A sanctuary dedicated to Apollo was built numerous temples and buildings. At present, Delos is one of the most outstanding archaeological sites in Greece. It was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1990. The island is not inhabited and it is not allowed to sleep there, so the visit must be made on the same day.
A must see is the spectacular Santorini, molded capriciously at the whim of strong volcanic explosions, the result is an island of incredible beauty. They say it was created when Eufemo, one of the Argonauts, threw overboard a piece of land that Triton had given him. According to the mythology, Cadmos, the son of a Phoenician king, while traveling in search of his sister Europe kidnapped by Zeus, settled down and founded a Phoenician colony on the island. His descendants lived for eight generations in what was then called Kallisté («the most beautiful»). The hero Theras, a descendant of Cadmos, later renamed the island with his name. Following an oracle, the inhabitants of Santorini left and later founded the city of Cyrene in what is now Libya.
We go to Naxos, the largest of the Cyclades. According to Greek mythology, Zeus, father of gods and men, grew up in Naxos, on Mount Zas, hidden from the ferocity of his father, Kronos. It is also said that Naxos is the place where Theseus called back to Athens after killing the Minotaur. There he left Princess Ariadna, daughter of King Minos, sister of the Minotaur, who in love with Theseus had helped him to kill him. The reason for this abandonment is controversial: some versions indicate that Theseus abandoned her of her own will, others say that it was by order of the gods so that she could marry Dionysus. It is also said that Dionysus, god of wine and son of Zeus, was born and grew up in Naxos with nymphs. He loved this island so much that he distributed fertility throughout his land, filling it with vineyards and other plantations.

In this project was the first generation that were part of this birth, its students of 1st year in the school where I taught, students from different parts not only from Mexico, but also from the world.
