  • [01] Photo exhibition in Copenhagen on Zea Harbour Project

    COPENHAGEN (ANA-MPA) -- A photographic exhibition was held here on Thursday evening entitled "Piraeus -- A Sea of Moments", organised by the Danish Institute of Athens to commemorate the underwater and coastal archaeological research conducted at the Zeas site -- the Zea Harbour Project -- in the modern port city.

    The exhibition is hosted at the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek and will continue until the end of August 2009.

    The works of five noted Danish photographers are on display, namely, Ture Andersen, Jorgen Borg, Krass Clement, Sofie Svare Fischer and Jannik Seidelin.

    Greek ambassador to Denmark Alexandros Kouyiou was present during the inauguration of the exhibition.

    [02] Mikis Theodorakis honored by Bosporus Univ. of Istanbul

    ISTANBUL (ANA-MPA / A. Kourkoulas) -- Noted Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis referred to the common musical tradition shared by modern Greece and Turkey, in thanking Bosporus University (Bogazici Universitesi) for awarding him a honorary doctorate, during a ceremony here.

    Theodorakis addressed the audience at the university's Hall of Ceremonies, speaking via satellite link from his residence in Athens, while he underlined that he is "filled with joy simply upon hearing the word 'Bosporus'," saying he associates it with the Byzantine musical tradition that has been an inspiration for much of his work.

    The honorary degree was received on behalf of Theodorakis by performer Maria Farantouri, an artist associated with many of the composer's best known works.
