The National Museum of Rome is hosting an exhibition about modern Greek engravers entitled “Greek Engraving at the Diocletian Baths.” It is organized under the auspices of both the Greek Embassy in Rome and the Italian Ministry of Culture.
At this significant archaeological site, opposite Rome’s central train station, a group of successful living artists will exhibit their work.
Among them will be Rena Anoussi-Ilia, Aria Komianou, Papadantonakis Bartholomew who belong to the older generation of Greek engravers. All of them have had a long successful career, participating in several international exhibits.
Many teachers of the Greek Fine Arts school will also present their engraving work while the new generation is represented. Among those featured will include Miltos Petalas, Marina Provatidou, Nick Stavrakantonakis, Orestis Symvoulides, Panayiotis Ferendinos and Gregory Kotsaris.
This long list of eminent engravers includes as well some renowned artists of Italian descent who have been living in Greece for over the past 20 years. Canuto Kallan, Francesco Moretti and Pino Pandolfini are only a few of them.
The Greek Ambassador of Rome Michael Cambanis attended the opening ceremony of the exhibition on July 5th. The show will be open until July 20.
