Why go with the Ancient when you can go Mod and have it both ways? There still exists a place, or two, where Greek meets Latin, where you don’t have to choose which of the cultures bests the other, because you can indulge in both at the same time. The journey requires you venture to the tip and heel of Italy’s boot, to the regions of Bovesia and Grecìa Salentina. There, Griko is spoken as it was when the Greeks first crossed the Strait of Otranto in the 11th century BC, where the transcendental turquoise waters of the Adriatic and Ionian Seas meet as one. In that Griko and Standard Modern Greek are close cousins, you can partake of the delights of both Italy and Greece without moving an inch.
