Proposals for a Modern Museum in Phaestos

The article summarizes the views of Dr. Cabianca, Professor of Architecture at the University of Palermo who was asked by the Italian School of Archaeology (excavating in Crete since 1900) to draw up plans for the construction of a modern museum in Phaestos and for the organization of the environment. According to Dr. Cabianca’s proposals apart from the Museum – which should include an “educational” centre hall – the site should be planted with trees so as to regain its previous aspect and help improve the condition of the monuments by supplying moisture during summer. This plan, proposed in 1976, was accepted by the Greek government. Unfortunately, nothing has materialized so far and for this reason “Archaiologia” journal introduces this excellent plan offered by the Italian School of Archaeology.
