A great tribute to the city of Athens was published a few days ago by the French daily newspaper Le Figaro, in a special 160-page edition entitled “Athènes éternelle”, “Eternal Athens”, part of “Le Figaro Hors-série”, a series focusing on art and culture.
This issue dedicated to Athens presents the classical city but also the modern facets of the Greek capital and is the fruit of a collaboration with the Greek national tourism organization.
In a separate article entitled “Athènes qu’on aime”, “Athens we love”, the journalist Isabelle Schmitz refers to the association DIAZOMA which has been working for eleven years in the restoration of ancient theaters and their reintegration into everyday life. She refers to its “spectacular achievements” as the Cultural Route of the ancient theaters of Epirus and mentions its new project, the Trilogy of Athens: Eleusis – Athina – Laurion and the restoration work of the ancient theater of Dionysus.
This special issue of the Figaro was presented on May 16 at a special event co-organized by the National Library of France and the French newspaper Le Figaro at the National Conservatory of Dramatic Arts in Paris, in the presence of 400 guests.
The DIAZOMA association warmly thanks the Figaro newspaper for highlighting the important work done by the Greek archaeological services as well as underlining the many facets of Diazoma’s work.
