Révendication des sculptures du Parthénon

Les célèbres Sculptures du Parthénon que Elgin a enlevé avec tellement de rudesse, entre 1801 et 1812, constituent un cas singulier puisqu’il s’agit du démembrement d’un monument et non pas d’une oeuvre d’art complète.

Le Club pour l’UNESCO de Le Pyrée et les Îles et son président et membre du Conséil Executif de la Fédération Internationale des Clubs, Associations et Centres de l’UNESCO (WFUCA), Mr. Ioannis Maronitis, à fin d’informer et de sensibiliser la communauté internationale sur l’importance et le droit de la Grèce au retour des sculptures du Parthénon, a organisé un Congrès International sur le sujet “ACROPOLE – Monument Unique du Patrimoine Culturel Mondial – La dévolution des Marbres”. Dans le Congrès a eu lieu la première exécution de la “Ode pour le Retour des Marbres” crée par le compositeur Zorze Katris. C’est un hymne symphonique avec chorale, qui est basé sur l’échelle mathématique de Pythagore et les clés numériques de l’alphabet du grec ancien. Le nombre d’or de l’Hymne charactérise l’architecture du Parthénon.
