ATHENS – The National Gallery of Art, a problem beset with funding and coordination problems, will be completed by March 2021, Culture Minister Lina Mendoni told the press at an informal Christmas briefing at the National Archaeological Museum cafe on Monday.

“The Gallery will be completed all together, building and collections, by March 2021,” she said.

Referring to the Cabinet meeting that had just concluded, she said that the only issue related to the ministry was the NSRF funding absorption, which is only close to 15 pct. The ministry’s absorption rate will accelerate, she asserted, and “no projects will be left unfinished.”

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
