A piece of art according to a government-run newspaper in 1987 has been at risk for years and a lack of maintenance for decades.
This is the home of the Zisopoulai in Peristera (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peristera,_Kozani), a two floor stone house built in 1865 with a strict fortress volume and few openings, a remarkable example of folk architecture and the only one left in the village after its Nazi arson.
This house was owned by the Zisopoulai, is one of the oldest houses in the village, is of historical value because its owners participated in the Macedonian struggle, Pavlos Melas (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pavlos_Melas) has passed through this house.
There was a large archive of the Macedonian struggle which the heirs have handed over to the monastery of Eratyra, 3 bowels archives of the Macedonian race and has architectural elements that are rare it is one of the few houses left in the village, it is the third house left in the village and it is the story of the village. as soon as it is demolished it will disappear from here, where the history of the village disappears.
the house is characterized as a work of art by the state, and the relevant GG emphasizes the need for special state protection, unfortunately, this historic home is about to fall after decades of maintenance and skillfully removing building materials from it.

''-I have heard that because a large chunk of the house has collapsed some skeptics are picking up stones from here.
-and that's why it collapsed, because some people took the stones and built their own yards, they built them to fit them.
- they get materials.-for materials of one euro let's say they destroy millions...''
