Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis visited the Greater Hellenism Foundation on Saturday morning, accompanied by Culture Minister George Voulgarakis. Karamanlis was given a guided tour of the premises where the visitor, thanks to modern technology and digital means, is able to "return" to ancient times, science and history.
He began his tour with a visit to the exhibition titled "Olympic Games Stories. A Different Exhibition", which displays objects, photographs and videos concerning the history of the Olympic Games, while promoting modern-day Olympic Games through the spirit of ancient ideals. The prime minister, through the fictitious reality program, toured ancient Militos, "viewing the most important public buildings, private homes and its port."
Karamanlis also visited the exhibition named "Is there a solution to everything?
Voyage in world of ancient Greek mathematics" that promotes the ancient Greek spirit and the significance of ancient Greek mathematics for world culture.
He said in a statement that the Greater Hellenism Foundation is performing a considerable task in promoting and spreading Greek culture with the use of digital-era means and new technologies.
"The Greater Hellenism Foundation is a characteristic example of what private initiative can also offer in their crucial sector of education and culture," he said.
Karamanlis met during his tour with schoolchildren on an educational tour and was photographed with them, while he was also briefed on the Foundation's plans and prospects of expansion.
