Mr. Kapralos notes in the exhibition documentation text: "According to an article by Nikos Sarantakos, '...the 'rastoni' (in ancient Greek spelled as ῥᾳστώνη) is derived from the 'rastos,' the superlative degree of 'ράστος' (easy, comfortable), which is traced back to the adverb 'ρα' (easily), which we also find in 'rathymo' (leisurely). In antiquity, it initially had primarily positive meanings. It meant ease, relief from something burdensome or unpleasant, and freedom from pain. The word also acquired the meaning of free time.' Summer vacations can be considered a social habit from a sociological perspective. One reason why summer vacations have become a social habit is that they are a product of industrialization and modernization. As societies urbanized and people became alienated from nature and began to work in factories and offices, there was a need for a break from the routine and monotony of daily work. This led to the development of the idea of summer vacations, which allowed people to take a break from work and travel to other places for recreation. In many societies, vacations are seen as a way to rejuvenate and renew, something considered necessary for maintaining mental and physical health. Vacations bring families and friends together, shape criteria of sociality for children, often defining what we enjoy as personal, what we see as romantic, what we feel as magical, what we experience as relaxing, and what we perceive as meaningful. We get closer to nature and find time for each other and, most importantly, for ourselves."
