Festive opening of the Cultural Route of the Ancient Theaters of Epirus

It is in a festive atmosphere that will take place Saturday, November 3 at 17:30 at the Cultural Center of the municipality of Ioannina the opening event of the Cultural Route of the Ancient Theaters of Epirus, “product” of cultural tourism with a holistic character.

This opening event will be the highlight of a weekend full of visits and events attended by actors from the Greek and world tourism industry, leading figures in culture and arts, journalists, bloggers and Greek and foreign travel agencies. The region of Epirus will reserve for all a warm welcome.

The Cultural Route of the Ancient Theaters of Epirus is an original holistic model of cultural and economic development around the ancient theaters of Epirus. Its purpose is to protect them, enhance them and make them known to the general public, thus strengthening the local economy and in particular the agri-food sector. The route includes four regional units, five archaeological sites (the archaeological sites of Dodona, Nikopolis, Kassopi, Amvrakia and Gitana), eight ancient sites where artistic performances once took place, 344 km of road and 2,300 years of history.

Since 2013, DIAZOMA has been working with the Epirus region and helping it to plan and implement this great program, which can now be used as a “pilot project” in other parts of the country.

DIAZOMA has contributed to the organization of the inaugural event, thanks to the generous sponsorship of the Pavlos & Alexandra Kanellopoulou Foundation and NEW ROAD SA, which are corporate members of the association, assigning projects related to the promotion of the program, such as the production and printing of information material (publications, brochures), the production of a mini-documentary intended to present the philosophy of the program to the public, the creation of the website of the itinerary, the promotion of the opening event via social networks as well as the design and preparation of the audiovisual infrastructure of the venue where the inaugural event will be held as well as related information and promotional material.

DIAZOMA would like to thank its corporate members for their unwavering support, through which the collective management of the cultural and natural patrimony that constitutes the largest heritage of our country is made possible.
