Lecture on Acropolis Museum

The Alliance Francaise in Bern, Switzerland, organised a lecture on the theme of “The New Acropolis Museum – An opportunity for the return of the Parthenon Marbles to Greece?”, in the presence of a large Swiss audience.

The speaker was Olivier Vodoz, Vice President of the International Red Cross and Vice President of the Swiss Committee for the Return of the Parthenon Marbles.

He outlined the historic and legal framework of the issue and referred to the efforts made so far, and that are continuing, both by the Greek state and the International Committee for the return of the Marbles.

The speaker further stressed the hope that with the construction of the New Acropolis Museum and the positive progress of internatiaonal law in this sector, the Parthenon Marbles will return to their historic environment which has a unique character.
