“The Restoration of the Ancient Theater of Sparta: Local, National and Global Responsibility” was the central theme of the 6th meeting of the corporate members of the DIAZOMA Association which took place in Sparta from 5 to 7 April. The Stavros Niarchos Foundation has paved the way by donating 111,000 euros to fi nance the restoration study of this great theater and the JM Kaplan Foundation, based in New York, followed suit by off ering 100,000 dollars (81.070 euros) to fi nance the fi rst part of its restoration. Works are scheduled to begin in 2019. During the event, the actions developed in collaboration with the corporate members of the Association, whose main objective is to place the monuments at the core of a region’s life as part of its sustainable development, were presented. The ensuing discussion emphasized the need to ensure the continued development and eff ective management of holistic cultural tourism programs through an appropriate management and monitoring mechanism, that is, a Destination Management and Marketing Organization (DMMO). It was subsequently announced that Marketing Greece and the Latsis Foundation will participate in the implementation of this initiative.
