The head of the Ephorate of Antiquities of Kozani Mr.. Areti Chondrogianni-Metoki were visited today in Aiani by the Deputy Regional Head of Business Development and. George Vavliaras, the Deputy Regional Minister of Education and Culture Mr.. Olga Putahidou as well as the Deputy Mayor of Urban Planning Mr.. Matina Amanatidou together with the Municipal Councilor Mr.. George Ftaka.
The local government as a whole was informed about the progress and the works that are being done for the settlement of the property issue that has been plaguing the Archaeological Museum of Aiani for many years..
The property that houses both the exhibition of extremely important antiquities and the offices of the Ephorate of Antiquities has not been legalized, creating a series of serious problems in its operation..
It is worth looking back to the first days of the term of the Regional Authority when the Regional Governor and. George Kasapidis made the first visit to the museum of Aiani, raising the issue of legalization as an absolute priority to be resolved. This was followed by a series of contacts and meetings on the steps that need to be taken to resolve the issue, with the governor dealing with the issue a few times in person.
The settlement of the issue is important for the regional authority as the Archaeological Museum will be given the opportunity to join an energy upgrade program while the building can be expanded to meet the operational needs of the Service..
Current projects of the service financed by the NSRF were also discussed, mature studies for projects to be integrated as well as the excavations that are currently being carried out.
