Two Argentinian TV show hosts went on Acropolis and shot offensive footage in front of the Parthenon without permission from the Central Archaeological Council (CAS).
According to an Antenna television report, the video from the Acropolis Hill and other footage from Mykonos were aired in Argentina on May 28. On May 14, the producers had submitted to CAS a request to shoot on Acropolis.
However, the CAS decision came out on June 25 and the request was rejected on the grounds that the Argentinian Television show lacks the merit to film on the “Sacred Rock” of Acropolis, one of the most revered monuments of humanity.
It seems then that the Argentinian crew went up on Acropolis and shot the footage without permission. At the same time, a question of negligence on the part of the Acropolis staff arises. Wasn’t there a guard to stop the shooting of the offensive footage?
The footage shows the two Argentinian TV show hosts fool around on Acropolis, take off their shoes and show their toes to each other and laugh goofily all along with the Parthenon in the background.
