Corfu in detail 9: Another neoclassical building on Donatou Dimoulitsa street

  Opposite the old psychiatric clinic, there is an old early 20th century neoclassical building. Hopefully it survived the era of the apartment block massive construction and nowadays it's ground floor is being occupied by a hairdresser and the upper floor by a social club. 

  The building's windows are simplistic. Right down of every window there are decoratives elements which, like the rest of the building, are fundamental.

  I can't tell if that building is listed, but if not, there should be. Constructions of this style could be found in other greek cities too and reflect an era when building was more an art than a necessity.
