  • [01] 'Belle Epoque' exhibition in Athens National Gallery

    "Art Nouveau and Modernism: Treasures from the Petite Palais-Paris Museum of Fine Arts" is the title of an exhibition at the National Gallery in Athens, reminiscent of Paris during the Belle Epoque.

    More than 150 paintings, items of furniture, posters, jewelry designs and other objects will be on display, a reminder of the flourishing era of artistic and cultural refinement in Europe, and especially in France, that began during the late 19th century and lasted until World War I, that has come to be known as The Belle Epoque. The exhibition will run until 28th February

    [02] PM hails EU summit result

    ANA-MPA - Prime Minister George Papandreou has welcomed the results of the European Union summit and the decisions taken for a permanent European stability mechanism. In statements after the end of the EU leaders' summit on Friday night, Papandreou said that such a mechanism would ensure the fiscal stability of the entire eurozone, speeding up structural reforms and boosting growth.

    He also welcomed the decisions taken as a "first step" toward a more powerful economic governance of the EU.

    "We started out 14 months ago as a newly elected government in exceptionally difficult conditions and, at a very rapid rate, we diagnosed the extent of the crisis, made proposals, fought for European policies and at the same time struggled to restore our credibility and to strengthen Greece's voice," the Greek premier said in a statement.

    He said the systematic effort had paid off and Greece was once more seen as credible by its European partners. ANA-MPA
