100 YEARS, PRECISELY.

1918 – 2018 THE AGATHON HISTORY

100 years Agathon: History is not only a chain of events that happened, but also a chain of stories. For this reason we will tell you stories from 100 years of Agathon in the coming months, sometimes serious, sometimes cheerful, but hopefully never boring.
