Digital Museum For Plato’s Academy

image28A digital museum will be created at the site of Plato’s Academy in an Athens neighborhood. The project was approved on April 11 by the Central Archaeological Council. It will be housed temporarily in a prefabricated building.

The project is being implemented under the title Academy of Plato: The City and the Citizen, put together by the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, in cooperation with Foundation of the Hellenic World (FHW), Onassis Cultural Center of the Onassis Foundation and the Foundation for Youth and Lifelong Learning. The project is co-financed from National and European Funds through the operational program Education and Lifelong Learning.

The city of Athens is paying for the construction for the project included in the National Strategic Reference Framework (NSRF). However, the project will be implemented by the FHW, whose purpose is to promote the importance of Platonic philosophy.
