EXHIBITION IN MILAN
DISCOVERING THE BEAUTY OF THE CYCLADES by W. M. Wilman had its first public (solo) exhibition at the prestigious Aquarium of Milan officially approved and promoted by the Department of Culture of the Municipality of Milan from May 10th to June 5th 2019. The theme was specifically land and sea, with one exception.
A photograph from the 'Lost Lady of Sikinos, Neiko' gallery was the centrepiece at the exhibition because of its archeological relevance, anticipating by two years the discovery of a tomb containing the remains of a noble woman buried 1.800 years ago at the church of Episkopi in a remote part of the island. It is one of the most important discoveries in Greece in recent years.
The exhibition, presented by the Greek Embassy Rome and British Embassy Athens on their social media platforms, as well as leading by journals in both nations (see the Media page), was dedicated to the late Professor Angelos Delivorias, a foremost archeologist in Greece and director of the preeminent Benaki Museum in Athens for more than 40 years. Over the two decades the Professor and W. Mark Wilman knew each other, his explanations about antiquity were of great use, particularly during the making of the project, which has been proposed to UNESCO to encourage the conservation of the archipelago for future generations.
Since the exhibition in Milan, ANEK LINES, a leading shipping company in the Mediterranean, has sponsored further research of the project ( see the Project & Sponsors' Page).
