The AGORA in ancient Greece was the Assembly of free people, who were summoned to know the princes and the generals decisions. This assembly used to gather in the central square of the town, it was called Agora and it became the center of the economic, political and cultural life.
There they held religious feasts, solemn rites; it was also the seat of trials and many problems were discussed, every citizen could participate, give his opinion .
In ancient times, when the culture was orally transmitted, the Agora was the place, where rhapsodes and aoidos played their works or the Homeric poems: in Greece they represented Sophias power, as Xenophanes says; the Agora was the place, where Socrates, one of the most important philosophers, spoke about his ideas and got in contact with learned people, helped by irony and refutation when he doubted their thought.
For these reasons the Agora is also one of the oldest cultural roots, its the place where the most important thinkers learned and taught the passion for knowledge.
The platonic Protagoras says : " the town can" .
It is the reason why the name of the association is LAGORÀ .
