My goal is to investigate an unknown area in the history of modern Greek music and in particular to explore the rapid increase of interest in classical guitar in the second half of the twentieth century in Greece. Also, to investigate the foundations and development conditions of the Greek guitar school, through the study of the life and work of Dimitris Fampas.
