PM Tsipras: Athens acquiring important new cultural pole through the SNFCC

The donation of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre (SNFCC) to the Greek State inaugurates a new era for the National Library and the National Opera, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras wrote in his Twitter account @PrimeministerGR on Thursday.

“The capital is acquiring an important new cultural pole,” the prime minister added in a second tweet, inviting Greeks to tune into his address at the official handover ceremony covered by the public broadcaster ERT.

“In a country where culture represents national capital, the prospects generated by this cultural centre have a multiplying effect,” he added.
