Greek President Pavlopoulos and Italian counterpart Mattarella visit the Acropolis

Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos and his Italian counterpart Sergio Mattarella visited the Acropolis Museum on Wednesday, where they were welcomed by Culture Minister Lydia Koniordou.

During the visit Pavlopoulos made a special reference to Hadrian:

“Hadrian was one of the greatest emperors of Rome and, perhaps, the top one in terms of intellectual and cultural range. He was the first to disseminate in a meaningful way the Greek antiquity, the spirit and culture of Rome, to be delivered later in eternity. Hadrian rightly won the title of ‘Benefactor of Athens'”.
