Along the rocky coasts of Mani, a mile out of Limeni and a short while before reaching the fairy cave, is the area that we locals call Demenico; I was born somewhere in this area, on one of those lonely rocks.‎
My name was passed down to me from my ancestors, the shaded rocks which remain unseen by daylight but for the midday sun.‎ A name that must be Venetian, probably adjusted by the locals, established in a word-of-mouth fashion that spans centuries, all the way back to the time, when the Venetian navy would lay siege to this land, without ever managing to conquer it.‎ Who knows, maybe it was the name of a ship that sank there or the name of a washed-up Venetian navy man that gave this area its name.‎
My color… is black and white, washed clear from the foam of the waves, and absolute, as are the ones who never have been tainted by foreign invaders; black next to white, placed in the inimitable way, distinct of this land.‎
I am gone now, swept away by the sea; chiseled, my shape changed from a rough, wild and lonely little rock to a smooth, accessible and pleasant one, although I never forget my roots in Demenico.‎
