Why Greece? - ¿Por qué Grecia

"When I was a child, it seemed strange to me that Greece was in the first chapter of every book, whether it was about history, mathematics, or whatever else, Greece was always in the beginning, on the horizon... These are the real landscapes of Greece, a place, a name, which in one way or another has carved its own landscape into the mind of every westerner... Why Greece? Why has Greece penetrated so deeply inside of us? Why, again and again, do all paths lead to her?"

Watch this, and understand!  This magnificent video (in Spanish, with English or Greek subtitles) by Pedro Olalla highlights the contribution of ancient Greek civilization to mankind, presented to the Meeting of Classicial Civilization in Sagunto, Spain on 17/11/2012 in response to the proposed abolition of Greek studies in Spanish education.
