Melina Mercouri Street


The year 2014 marks the 20th anniversary of Melina Mercouri’s passing. The Melina Mercouri Foundation pays tribute to her by presenting a special album edition entitled "Melina”.

Following the release of this album the Foundation in collaboration with the Benaki Museum present a photographic exhibition dedicated to her. Both the photography exhibition and edition highlight her radiant personality and the international caliber of her work. They trace her trajectory through cinema, theater and politics, her personal moments. They reveal the passion with which she strived for cultural issues and Greece, and her unique charisma for inspiring and drawing support for her visions. On the same day of the opening of the exhibition (04.03.2014, at 19:00), a small extract from the theatrical play “2013 Melina M” of Constantinos Aspiotis will be presented, followed by the ceremony of the Melina Mercouri Awards.
