[ From the Media ]

An isolated remainder of Ottoman Athens around 1800, the rediscovered Benizelos mansion in the Plaka will be revitalized, as Ekathimerini reports. Under the supervision of the architect Yiannis Kizis (author of several articles/publications on traditional dwellings in Thessaly and Greece) will be restored and turned into a museum. The Benizelos mansion had long been in ruins, as previous restoration attempts in the 1980s had been blocked by the Ministry of Culture.
