Photographer's Note

The Academy of Athens is Greece’s national academy of science. The organisation will soon have 100 years since its creation, but its tradition refers to the Platonic Academy. The statues on the pillars represent Athena and Apollo, while the sitting marble monuments are of Plato and Socrates. The building was completed in 1885, but even though it is relative new in comparison to ancient Athenian structures, it has a great value for tourists because it allows us to imagine how the classical monuments may have looked before.
