The Acropolis’ New Illumination To Be Unveiled Tomorrow

The Acropolis's brand-new lighting design will be revealed on Wednesday, 30 September at 20:00, in the presence of the President of the Greek Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou, the Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, the Minister of Culture and Sports Lina Mendoni, and the President of the Onassis Foundation, Antonis S. Papadimitriou.

The monument's new illumination is the first of a series of projects carried out by the Ministry of Culture and Sports to upgrade the Acropolis' infrastructure and services. The project has been implemented and funded by the Onassis Foundation.

The new illumination of Athens' most prominent landmark highlights the whole Sacred Rock, the Walls, the volume, and each monument's geometry, from every possible point of view. The marbles, whiter than ever, reflect every aspect, every geometric shape, every natural material, emphasizing the relief of each monument's decoration.
