ANCIENT AGORA OF ATHENS

ANCIENT AGORA OF ATHENS

The Ancient Agora of Athens was an area of political gatherings and commercial transactions, the locus of the administration and justice, a religious and intellectual centre. FHW's scientists worked for its implementation. In order to reconstruct the Ancient Agora in a complete and scientifically documented way, the subject was developed through three different tours: “Interactive tour in the Ancient Agora of Athens”, “Happening in the Ancient Agora” and “Athena in the Ancient Agora”. During the “interactive tour”, visitors explore the Agora and, under the guidance of a special Museum Educator, have the opportunity to choose a personal course. The Agora can be visited, through jumps in time, in three different important moments: Classical Agora (approx. 400 BC), Hellenistic Period (approx. 150 BC) and Roman Agora (approx. 150 AD). Visitor seats of our VR theaters in Athens enable people to be brought at certain moments and interact by pushing a button. “Happening in the Ancient Agora” is a complex theatrical happening, where VR presentation is combined with actors. “Athena in the Ancient Agora” allow visitors through the existence of a dramatized script to participate in the presentation and to assume roles. To further disseminate the program we created an online digital collection of the topography of the Agora, accessible through GoogleEarth. The online representation achieved the First Price in the Online Collada Contest. Accessible at: Tholos of the Foundation of the Hellenic World (FHW), Athens, GR. Developed by: Foundation of the Hellenic World (FHW), Athens, GR.
