Arvanites also live near the Albanian border, in most departments of Epirus and in the Florina and Kastoria departments of Macedonia; also, in the border (with Turkey) department of Evros (in Thrace) and in the Salonica department (where they settled along with other Orthodox refugees from Eastern Thrace, in the 1920’s).
Like the rest of the population, since the 1950s, Arvanites have been emigrating from their villages to the cities and especially to the capital Athens, which, incidentally, was a mainly Albanian (Arvanite) small town in the early 1800’s, before becoming the Greek state’s capital (Nakratzas, 1992:87-8).
Today, Arvanite ethnic identity is perceived by many members of the community as distinct from that of the other Greeks who have Greek as their mother tongue but as fully compatible with Greek national identity (likewise for many Vlachs and Macedonians).

 Arvanites - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Arvanites are distinguished in Greece from Cham Albanians (Greek: "Τσάμηδες"), another group of Albanophones in the northwest of Greece.
Arvanites were organised in phares (φάρες) mostly during the reign of the Ottoman Empire.

Arvanites in Greece originate from Albanian settlers who moved south at different times between the 14th and the 16th centuries from areas in what is today southern Albania.
In the 17th and 18th centuries, Arvanites from Epirus constituted a prominent element in the establishment of the effectively independent state of the Souliotes in the mountains of Epirus, which resisted Ottoman domination.
Regions with a strong traditional presence of Arvanites are found mainly in a compact area in southeast Greece, namely across Attica, southern Boeotia, the north-east of the Peloponnese, the south of the island of Euboea, the north of the island of Andros, and several islands of the Saronic Gulf including Salamis.

Arvanites in the south of Greece are believed to be the descendants of Albanian-speaking settlers, who moved south at different times between the 11th century and the 15th century from what is today southern Albania and northwest Greece (Biris 1960, Poulos 1950, Panagiotopulos 1985).
The regions traditionally inhabited by Arvanites in the south of Greece are found across large parts of Attica, Boeotia, the Peloponnese, the south of the island of Euboea and the north of the island of Andros.
While the Arvanitic language was commonly called Albanian in Greece until the 20th century, the wish of Arvanites to express their ethnic identification as Greeks has led to a stance of rejecting the identification of the language with Albanian as well.

 Short History of Vilia
During the 13-15th century we had colonisations of Arvanites in southern Greece from the areas of the "theme" (administrative division) of Illiria of the Byzantine Empire.
During the Venetian-Turkish wars, Arvanites were at the side of the Venetians.
Today, only the debris of this village remains, silent and sullen, as if it is still afraid of the ''fustes'', whilst the small church of Ai-Giorgi is still standing in the middle of the plain, like their sleepless guard.

 [Alb-Educ] Arvanites
To answer these and other questions, Kocollari has researched and made use of a very rich and extensive bibliography where one can quickly perceive the paucity of Albanian historiography - out of 55 authors and publications listed and quoted by the author, only 8 are Albanian, the rest are Latin, British, German, and, mainly, Greek.
I believe this has produced a two-sided effect: One side, the positive one, clearly shows that everything written in the book about the Arvanits (Albanians) of Greece cannot really be disputed since the evidence is abundantly and undeniably supported by the large number of cited Greek authors, historians, archeologists, and scientists.
Yet, of the 230 pages of Arvanitet, Kocollari devotes only a few pages to non-military aspects of the Arvanits, and only one chapter, the last one, is dedicated exclusively to their Albanian culture.

 Little noise is made on Island about car alarms, The Staten Island Advance, July 11, 2003
Gripes about alarm noise are most common on the densely populated North Shore, where passers-by and sloppy parallel-parkers are more likely to set off sensitive units.
"It's a quality-of-life issue," said Mike Arvanites, legislative coordinator to City Councilman Michael McMahon (D-North Shore), who is a sponsor of both bills.
"Some are so sensitive that a clap of thunder or a ball rolling up against a car can set one off," Arvanites said.

 Albania creates a minority of oppressed Arvanites in Epirus.
While the Hellenic government has put a stop to any talk about the Hellenic minority in N. Epirus, their struggles, or their desire to be free, the Albanians have started a campaign of propaganda with liberated Epirus as the target.
Publications describing Arvanites as "Albanians", and maps showing their extent to even Lakonia (!), have been circulating and getting the support of many of Hellas' enemies.
But our "progressive" friends in the left (SYN), would much rather concern themselves with the "equality" of "minorities" (even if they have to create some), rather than the problems of Hellenes.
