  • [01] Major Italian art exhibition

    An exhibition featuring 24 works by Titian, Annibale Carracci and other major Italian painters will be officially opened at the Museum of Cycladic Art in Athens on Wednesday night by President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias and visiting Italian President Giorgio Napolitano.

    The exhibition is entitled "From Titian to Pietro da Cortona: Myth, Poetry and the Sacred", and was organised with the assistance of the Italian embassy in Athens to mark the Italian president's official visit to Greece.

    The works of art on display, including seven by the Venetian painter Tiziano Vecellio or 'Titian', are on loan from major Italian museums and galleries and explore the development of art in Italy during the 16th and 17th centuries.

    The curator was Professor Giovanni Morello, working in collaboration with Cycladic Art Museum director Prof. Christos Stampolidis.

    The exhibition is accompanied by a trilingual catalogue (Greek-Italian-English) which contains the paintings on display and scholarly articles by Prof. Claudio Strinati, Prof. Giovanni Morrello and Dr. Sergio Guarino. It is set to run until Dec. 20.

    [02] Nat'l Reform Program being finalised

    Greece will submit its National Reform Programme for the period 2008-2010 to the European Commission by Oct. 15, Economy and Finance Minister George Alogoskoufis said on Monday.

    Addressing an event organised by the Economic and Social Commission, Alogoskoufis said the government was finalising the drafting of its National Reform Programme, which focused both on progress made towards adopting the EU Council's recommendations and on the drafting of specific future actions.

    The minister noted that drafting of the programme was made at a time when the global economy was going through one of the most critical periods of the last decades.

    "The impact from international developments has affected the European economy more than originally estimated. These developments are affecting Greece as well, but reforms made in the previous years have strengthened the country's resistance to external shocks," Alogoskoufis said.

    He urged alertness and stressed that the reform programme should ensure fiscal stability in the country. Alogoskoufis said the government was facing two great challenges: containing public spending and combating tax evasion.
