  • [01] Heroes: Mortals and Myths in Ancient Greece

    ANA-MPA/The Alexander S. Onassis Public Benefit Foundation in New York hosts the exhibition entitled "Heroes: Mortals and Myths in Ancient Greece", from Oct. 5, 2010 until Jan. 3, 2011.

    Mythical heroes and heroines like Hercules, Ulysses, Achilles and Helen of Troy, among others, continue to inspire modern culture, with the exhibition venturing to explore the inherent human need for heroes by making it relevant to today's society.

    On display will be more than 90 extraordinary works of art dating back to the Archaic, Classical and Hellenistic Periods (6th-1st centuries BC) borrowed from private collections in the United States and Europe.

    The exhibits include a wide range of sculptures, pottery and miniatures of engraved precious stones.

    The exhibition has been organised by the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore in cooperation with the First Center for Visual Arts in Nashville, the San Diego Museum of Art and the Onassis Foundation (USA).

    [02] Rehn on Chinese investments

    BRUSSELS (ANA-MPA/M. Aroni) - Amadeu Altafaj, the spokesman of EU Economic and Financial Affairs Commissioner Olli Rehn, called on to comment during a regular press briefing on Sunday's statements by Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao on the Greek economy, said in Brussels on Monday that "every kind of move that promotes investments in Greece, can help the recovery of the Greek economy."

    Rehn's spokesman stressed that the European Commission shares the view of the Chinese authorities that Greece can emerge from the crisis, since the country is implementing its economy adjustment programme correctly.

    "Whatever helps the increase in demand is welcome," Altafaj said, adding that the programme that Greece is implementing is "strict but necessary".
