Katina Paxinou

  • Katina Paxinou


    Our project on Great Greek women will now focus on Katina Paxinou one of the most talented actresses in Greece whose great performing skills  earned her an international fame  and made her win an award.

     We started looking into her life and work with great pleasure and interest as she  came from the city of Piraeus and was raised in a neighbourhood close to our school.

    We got to know her through several  videos 

    We were really impressed by what we saw as we knew very little about her. We kept on working with great enthusiasm to discover more about her great personality.


    At first, we collected information and photographs from various websites on the Internet, from old magazines, newspapers and relevant bibliography and created a small presentation of her life.
