17 DECEMBER 2013 / The Prefecture of Lakonia and DIAZOMA honor the Stavros Niarchos Foundation

On Wednesday December 18th the Prefecture of Lakonia and DIAZOMA are holding a special event in Sparti in honor of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. The SNF supported the study DIAZOMA carried out for the restoration of the ancient theater of Sparta.

In keeping with the anticipated timeframe, and after a year of intensive research and scientific documentation, DIAZOMA has completed the relevant study and submitted it to the Ministry of Culture’s Central Archaeological Council (CAC), which approved it with honors, on October 15th 2013, opening the way for the restoration of the ancient theater of Sparta and the revival of its original function as a place of gathering and a venue for cultural events. During the event the study will be presented while Mr. George Agouridis, SNF board member, will receive an award on behalf of SNF.
