“The Parthenon Sculptures are a product of theft and therefore, Greece will never recognise ownership and possession by the British Museum”
Lina Mendoni, Greek Minister of Culture
World Culture Day 2020 – the Ministry of Culture and Sports, in cooperation with the International Committees for the Return of the Parthenon Sculptures, opened a new chapter in the claim for the return of the Parthenon sculptures to Greece.
An explosive of neo-Hellenism letter was sent to the Ministry of Culture and Sports, Lina Mendoni, by the Presidents of the Committees, who, in view of 2021 bicentennial, are proposing coordinated pressure on the British Museum to decide on the final and permanent return of Parthenon sculptures to their birthplace, in Athens.
