Again, Hugo draws inspiration from the Aegean landscape around the island of Kastellorizo, and its unique geological formations characterised by underground drainage systems with sinkholes and caves.

It is named after the Lady of Ro, Despina Achladioti, a Greek patriot born on the island of Kastellórizo in 1890.

She sailed to the neighbouring island of Ro where she raised the Greek flag every day, regardless of the weather, from the time Despina arrived on the island in 1927 until she left in May of 1982, a few days before Hugo was born.
