Please note: This article is in Greek. This article presents a representative portion of my doctoral thesis concerning Italian literature in the Athenian periodical Nea Estia from 1927 to the end of the 20th century. More than 500 Italian texts described and analyzed, are invaluable in terms of structure and presentation of the periodical itself, and for the greater aesthetic of Hellenic periodical literature, as well as for Hellenic comparative literature in general. The inclusion of Italian letters in Nea Estia in the specific period supplies much of the spirit of the Italian Renaissance — which has continued to influence Italian thought and letters even up to the present time — and which dynamically enriches the often prescriptive forms of Hellenic cultural production. As Greek scholars argue, Italian letters are the most closely aligned to the Hellenic. Rather than separating the two cultures, the historical and political conflicts between Italy and Greece operate in combination towards an unending reciprocation of ideas and ideals from ancient to modern times.
