ECOWEEK: Save the Mosaic of Aegina campaign!

One of the most rare and significant findings of archaeology was discovered in Aegina island, Greece, in the 19th century: a mosaic with rich geometric patterns and two Greek inscriptions that identify the mosaic floor as to belonging to a 4th century CE synagogue. The mosaic is at a dangerous state of damage and neglect and requires urgent preservation and protection.

In cooperation with the Eforate of Antiquity of Piraeus and the Islands of the Ministry of Culture and Sports, a program has been initiated for the preservation of the mosaic of Aegina ancient synagogue. The program started in 2018 and is scheduled to be completed in 2020.

The program is administered by ECOWEEK, as an outstanding project that promotes cultural preservation and sustainability that promotes the principles of strengthening the local history, local community and local economy. Keep reading
