A Poem About the SNFCC

Dec 28, 2018
…handwritten by “Enniachorianos” in Chania, Crete.

Oh, warm and welcoming Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center,
there are few places on the planet like this.
My son visited there recently
and brought me back leaflets, showing the depth
of thought and contribution; of greatness,
guided by the rays of the sun.
A hub of sustainability, a cultural diamond;
it is a great benefit for the renowned city of Athens.

It is a great honor to receive letters, especially when they carry the personal style of the sender, such as this letter written in the form of a poem about the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) from “Enniachorianos”, Mr. Giannis Malaxianakis. Gestures like this are the greatest reward for the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, confirming in practice that the SNFCC is fulfilling its original mission and acts a source of inspiration for its visitors.

The SNFCC is the largest single grant of the SNF to date, delivered to the Greek state in February 2017.
