  • [01] 3D screenings of Acropolis monuments at New Acropolis Museum

    AMNA / The much photographed and videotaped monuments of Athens' Acropolis never cease to amaze visitors with their perfection and beauty, but how many people are aware of the "secrets" behind the unique Parthenon, the magnificent Propylae or the temples of the Erechtheion and Athena Nike?

    As of this coming weekend, Feb. 4-5, the monuments of Athens 'Sacred Hill' will be revealed to visitors at the New Acropolis Museum through three-dimensional projections.

    Every Saturday and Sunday a 10-minute film entitled "The Acropolis in Antiquity", produced under the supervision of the Acropolis Monuments Preservation Service, will be screened in the museum's first-floor Virtual Reality Hall.

    The fill will present the Acropolis' unique monuments in three dimensions, while also providing useful information to help visitors understand these architectural sculptures.

    There will be two projections daily on the weekends, at 11 a.m. in English and at noon in Greek.

    For groups over 10 persons, reservations are required by phone, by calling the Museum Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., at 210 9000903.

    The 3D screenings are part of the new, enhanced "A Day at the Acropolis Museum" programme. amna

    [02] ND opposition to abolition of '13th', '14th' salaries

    AMNA / New Democracy (ND) spokesman Yiannis Mihelakis on Monday underlined that a firm negotiation is necessary to change what he called recession-generating policies, pointing out that in a different case the country will be unable to exit the crisis.

    Speaking to a private Athens-based television station, he said the proposals submitted by troika (EC-ECB-IMF) representatives do not include measures designed to boost development, and pointed out that if the country fails to be productive it will not be able to overcome the ongoing punishing crisis.

    Referring to ND's opposition to the abolition of the so-called 13th and 14th salaries (half-salary Easter and summer vacation bonuses and a full-salary Christmas bonus), he said the recession will increase 3.5 percentage points in case they are abolished and every effort will be pointless.

    As regards the lack of competitiveness, he underlined that it is unrelated with the wage cost and is the result of non-wage labour cost, taxation, energy cost and red tape. amna
