Greek President Attends Historical Exhibit on Greek Revolution Bicentennial

ATHENS — President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou attended the inauguration of an exhibit on the bicentennial of the start of the Greek Revolution at the National and Historical Museum earlier on Tuesday.

The exhibit, "EPANA(CY)STASI '21" by the Historical and Ethnological Society of Greece, is one of those highlighted by the Greek chapter of the International Council of Museums (ICOM) for International Museum Day, celebrated annually on May 18.

Sakellaropoulou was welcomed by Culture & Sports Ministry Lina Mendoni and the Society president of the board and board secretary.

In her speech, the Greek president noted the exhibit's play on the Greek words "revolution" and "reconstruction" or "reconstitution", and said that by recalling the historical events Greeks today can comprehend in depth the key event that led to the creation of the modern Greek state. She also pointed out that the National Historical Museum is housed at the first home of the Greek Parliament, and reinvents itself constantly to become more flexible and accessible to the community at large.
