DIAZOMA and MEGARON PLUS have renewed their collaboration for 2019 and will present four new conferences on the theme “The Athens Trilogy: Eleusis-Athens-Laurion” at the Athens Concert Hall.
Our goal is to develop and progressively implement, in collaboration with all relevant bodies and with the dynamic support of our corporate members, an Integrated Territorial Investment (ITI) and a branded tourism product aimed at boosting the cultural and touristic interest for the city and the region of Athens and make it an autonomous destination. The archaeological parks of Eleusis and Thoricos at Laurion, as well as Athens main monuments (Parthenon, Ancient Agora, Pnyx, Theater of Dionysus, Stoa of Eumenes, Herod Atticus Theater) and museums (Museum of the Acropolis, National Archaeological Museum) constitute a single unit and illustrate the fundamental aspects of the city of Athens in antiquity. Eleusis with his Telesterion, where initiatory ceremonies were held, and its Sacred Way recall its mythical origin and its theological role. The monuments of Athens testify to the political, democratic and cultural influence of the ancient city while the remains of Laurion with its silver mines, thanks to which the great monuments were financed, remind us of the importance of these resources for the political and military power of the Athenian Republic.
