'NOSTOI' EXHIBITION AT ACROPOLIS MUSEUM, PROOF THAT ILLEGAL TRAFFICKING OF CULTURAL GOODS IS NOT AS EASY AS IT WAS IN THE PAST

The Culture Ministry of Greece will be organising the "Nostoi" exhibition at the New Acropolis Museum in the framework of the Italian President's visit to Athens.

The exhibition includes the "Nostoi Capolavori Ritrovati" exhibition which was organised by the Presidency of the Italian Republic and was initially presented in Rome (Palazzo del Quirinale, December 2, 2007-March 30, 2008) and then at the Palazzo Poli a Fontana di Trevi and focused on 74 repatriated antiquities from various Museums in the United States.

The exhibition will provide the public with the first taste of the joint effort between Italy and Greece on cracking down on the illegal trafficking of their cultural goods.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a detailed scientific catalogue in both the Greek and English language.

The inauguration will be taking place on Wednesday, September 24, at 10:30 a.m.
