Invite you to a Public Lecture by Emanuel J. Comino AM
"The Case for the Reunification of the Parthenon Marbles"
SAHETI School pupils, staff and parents welcomed a special guest to the school on Thursday 14 June - Mr Emanuel Comino AM, chairman of the International Organising Committee (Australia) for the Restitution of the Parthenon Marbles.
Mr Comino delivered a presentation on what is one of the most important cultural property disputes in the world: the return of the Parthenon Marbles to Greece, from where they were removed in the 19th century and taken to England.
He presented a convincing argument for the return of the Marbles, with reference to interesting historical information on how and why the marbles were taken. He and Advocate George Bizos (a founder of SAHETI School and member of the local restitution committee) will be attending the global colloquy on the reunification of the Parthenon Marbles in London from 19 - 20 June.
Sunday 1 April, 3pm, Greek Community Centre, 168 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne. FREE Event. Phone: (03) 9662 2722.
