DIAZOMA Association 15th General Assembly in Kalamata and the Archaeological Site of Ancient Messene Successfully Completed
The Great Petros Themelis and the Wonder of Ancient Messene
Northern Evia dominated the life of DIAZOMA in 2022.
Ancient Theatres, Cultural Routes, the “POLIS” Programme, and the Avenues of Culture are set to dominate 2023.
This was the crux of my speech, which was followed by the inspiring address of Professor Petros Themelis, the 15th General Assembly’s guest of honour.
An exhibition booklet, “AENAOS”, captures and depicts the ongoing and fascinating relationship between Professor Themelis and Ancient Messene.
Giorgos Kouroupos’ serenade, a piece from the heart, and Stathis Gyftakis’ four paintings completed the mosaic of art and love dedicated to Professor Themelis.
He, in turn, filled with passion, reminiscence, and poetry, wondrously unfolded his life’s work in an unforgettable tour that will stay with us forever.
And life at the DIAZOMA Association will thus go forth harmoniously, participatorily, poetically, patriotically.
President of the DIAZOMA Association
