Plato’s digital museum.




In ancient times, Plato’s Academy was an exclusive school designed to cultivate the minds of aspiring politicians in Ancient Athens. In the course of two millennia, Plato’s teachings have formed the foundation of Western philosophy.

What had been taught inside the walls of the Academy still reverberates, and the preservation of this heritage will be the objective of a new project.

A Digital Museum with multimedia applications on the life and works of Plato will soon be installed in the Academy, the Educational Museum of the Academy of Plato that will feature interactive multimedia touch screens with bilingual material. The installation is part of an EU-funded project The Citizen and Society, featuring courses and learning-through-experience applications for adults designed to address issues related to the public space, placing emphasis on the unique ties between city and citizen.

The project is implemented by the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, the Onassis Cultural Center, the Foundation of the Hellenic World and the Foundation for Youth and Lifelong Learning and has already been approved by the Central Archaeological Council.
