“History Lost” a Multimedia Exhsibition

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA) Within the framework of Greece’s efforts to secure the repatriation of illegally-exported ancient artefacts, the Hellenic Foundation for Culture is currently organising a major exhibition at the Portuguese National Museum of Archaeology in Lisbon on the illicit antiquities trade and its impact on Civilization. The exhibition titled “History Lost” is part of the Foundation’s broader campaign (since 2006), which aims at alerting countries worldwide, thus emphasizing the universal dimension of the issue of illicit antiquities trade. Previous events were successfully held in Athens, Nicosia and Trieste, with the participation of accredited academics and governmental bodies. The Foundation for Hellenic Culture will present the exhibition in a number of other cities, such as Paris, London, Belgrade, Berlin, Frankfurt, and Alexandria. The collection exhibited comprises exact replicas of artefacts that have returned to Greece and Cyprus in recent years.  Hellenic Foundation for Culture: On line Exhibitions: History Lost
