For the first time, 27 works by Cy Twombly inspired by Greek mythology and his close ties with Greece will be presented alongside 12 ancient artworks, revealing a unique and original dialogue between ancient Greek and contemporary art.
The goal of the exhibition is to present to the visitors, in a coherent and comprehensible manner, the history of Greek seafaring and shipbuilding, giving them a chance to take a mental trip back in time to discover the close and timeless relationship of the Greek people with the sea.
A new unit will enrich the exhibition VOYAGE – Greek Shipbuilding and Seafaring from antiquity to modern times. It will focus on the century of research during which scientists have tried to understand the Antikythera Mechanism.
After 2 years of major restoration of the interior, the Tower of Winds in Athens’ Roman Agora can be now visited as a whole (first time in modern history). The monument gave its name to the neighborhood around it, “Aerides”.
