Welcome to the House of Asterion

network of residences propitious to develop young talents

... its doors (whose numbers are infinite) are open day and night to men and to animals as well. Anyone may enter. He will find here no female pomp nor gallant court formality, but he will find quiet and solitude.
'The House of Asterion'
by Sir Jorge Luis Borges

It was on 23rd April 2009 -the day of St George, a new Shakespeare and Cervantes' anniversary and the first year of our beloved cavalier Argos- that we started opening the House of Asterion, our network of residences to host young talents.

It was after years of constant work that the first residences 'Asterion House' opened under the Time's meridian, at the heart of the most cosmopolitan city in the world, London, capital to one of the few democracies on the planet Earth [as long as the UK keeps the MP's uninominal constituencies; but in urgent need of improvements to perfect Democracy if we want the United Kingdom to remain united and free from institutional corruption : 1) Proper representation by electing each Member of Parliament by absolute majority, with a second ballot between front runners when necessary; setting thus each MP under the control of his/her constituents, not under the Party's leader. 2) Separation of the Legislative and the Executive powers, electing directly the Prime Minister by the whole UK electorate and by absolute majority to legitimate its representation, like in the USA and in France. Democracy is not any voting regime, certainly not proportional voting or an opinion poll, is not ruling by consensus but by a qualified absolute majority...; to learn what Democracy is, please read 'A Pure Theory of Democracy' by Antonio Garcia-Trevijano].

In association with The Friends of Jorge Luis Borges Worldwide Society, each Asterion's House provides a home to gifted individuals wanting to develop their education within a propitious environment for intellectual and artistic maturation, in an atmosphere of mutual learning with opportunities to create and show works to the public; thus encouraging the fulfilment of each other talents.
