Yiannis Amanatidis: Ancient Theatre of Dion a flagship site

Deputy Foreign Minister Yiannis Amanatidis on Tuesday described the ancient theatre of Dion as a flagship archaeological site, during his opening speech at the presentation of the programme of the 47th Festival of Olympus.

The minister underlined that “culture records the many achievements, images, ideas and visions of a nation. It is an imaginary line that travels through time, transporting people’s memories and dreams”.

Amanatidis said that this year’s honoured country at the festival is the Czech Republic, which is celebrating the 25th anniversary since its foundation.
