Venice meets Greece

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)   An intriguing series of events is hosted by the Italian Embassy in Athens under the main theme of “Venice meets Greece.” The events are seen as an attempt to familiarise Greeks with the Venetian culture and the bonds established between the former city-state and the islands of the Aegean Sea, during the years of the Venetian Rule. Within the framework of the “Venice meets Greece” events, inaugurated by the Venice-born Ambassador to Athens Gianpaolo Scarante, a visual arts exhibition on Perulli’s “Cupolas of the East: From Venice to Byzantine” is now open at the Italian Institute of Culture in Athens (in Greek). Greco Venetian relations during the Venetian Rule’s times is a research field mastered by the Hellenic Institute of Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Studies situated in Venice.
