Zografou Municipality Enterprise of Development (DEADIZ) Prefecture of Athens
Georgi, Neratzia Julia (2008)
The area of interest has been focused on Zografou (Athens Prefecture), a suburb in the eastern part of the capital city of Athens, and its metropolitan region (AMA) (3,500,000 inhabitants) which constitutes the main “gateway” to Greece. One third of the Greek population resides in the AMA which produces around one third of Greece’s GDP. Today, Athens and its region, Attica (including Zogafos municipality), are going through a very dynamic transition period – old institutional structures still subsist, but integrated and strategic governance structures are emerging. New public infrastructures, complementing environmental and architectural assets, are radically transforming the region.
