‘Meteor’ crash-lands in Syntagma on Insurance Day


An actor kitted out as an astronaut stands beside a fake meteor staged to look as though it has crash-landed in Syntagma Square in front of the Parliament building in the center of Athens Friday. The event, which drew dozens of onlookers, was part of a campaign by the Association of Greek Insurance Companies to raise public awareness of Private Insurance Day by reminding the public of the unforeseen perils that lurk around every corner and to inform them of the packages offered by the country’s insurers.
