Archeologist-Historian of Modern Art

National Theatre of Greece

Designed by the German architect E. Ziller. It was constructed in the years 1895-1901. The building combines the neoclassic style with eclectic elements. It is heavily decorated creating a big impact.

Schliemann’s Mansion (Numismatic Museum)

The Numismatic Museum is in the house of the famous archaeologist, Heinrich Schliemann. The building- designed by Schliemann’s friend Ziller- was completed in 1881. It is one of the few buildings of that era that remain intact and standing in Athens.

Arsakio Mansion (School Building)

Designed by L. Kavtatzoglou and built in the years 1846-1852. It has a very strict neoclassical style with few decorations. Marble stones from the archaeological site of Acropolis that were deemed as “unnecessary” were used for its construction. This action that today is considered sacrilegious was then approved by King Otto. Ten years ago, during the renovation of the building, the archaeological committee managed to abstract most of those stones and return them to the archaeological site of Acropolis. Only the ones that are part of the foundation building still remain after being catalogued and photographed.
