The South Slope of Acropolis: The Intellectual and Artistic Center of Ancient Athens. Today what?

Monuments such as the Sanctuary of Dionysus with its two temples and theater, the Pericles’ Odeion, Asclepieion, Eumenis’ Stoa and the Herode Atticus’ Odeum, which for centuries functioned as the cultural and artistic center of ancient Athens and embellished the land of Attica, it is not permitable to remain in obscurity, undergraded and deserted. These important monuments can play today an almost equal to the past attractive social role: restored, preserved and protected, they can be incorporated in a venerated, charming, friendly, properly organized and fully controlled archaeological park, which will gradually evolve to a familiar, dear place.
