    Greece outside Greece - Out of time beauty

    Mr Santucci's pictures portray the masterpieces of Greek art, which are kept in several Italian museums and the Valley of the Temples. In this valley close to Agrigento, the master architects of Great Greece built a splendid example of their power to re-create the grandeur of Athens throughout the world. Their ideals of beauty, harmony and balance have moved generations and influenced contemporary artists such as the sculptor Igor Mitoraj, who has created an art installation of Greek masterpieces, placing them close to the valley's archaeological remains. This exhibition seeks to demonstrate the magical link between past and present, and to share part of Greece's heritage through the powerful images.
