How did almighty Zeus rule Gods and men? Why was the Goddess Demeter forced to say goodbye to her daughter once a year? How did the other Gods deal with warlike Mars? What strange had happened at the birth of the Goddess Athena?
In the ancient Greek myths – which were loved and traveled beyond the borders of Greece and influenced the religion, life and worldview of many peoples – the Twelve Gods of Olympus lead the way with their rituals, passions, loves and conflicts. They are the focus of the great mythological thematic exhibition “Gods of Olympus” which is also coming to Athens.
The main objective of the exhibition is not only to entertain the viewer but also to try to bring him closer to ancient Greek mythology, to help him understand the deeper symbolism and messages hidden in the various myths, Greek knowledge and wisdom.
The scientific editing of the exhibition belongs to the acclaimed historian Thanos Veremis.
