The Parthenon has become a symbol of global citizenship recognised all over the world. Its shape has been associated with beauty, perfection and stature. This can be seen in any building that reflects these values (court houses, banks, museums etc). What the world needs to be aware of is that an integral part of the structure and decoration of this monument (the collection of the Parthenon Marbles) was removed and has been kept away for over 200 years. Due to tireless efforts by Global citizens and an increasingly positive world public opinion the case for reunification is gaining momentum towards a commonly accepted solution. The reunification of a global icon as the Parthenon will benefit not only the Greek people but the world community who will be able to admire and study the narrative of the collection in its intended state
International Organising Committee - Australia - For the Restitution of the Parthenon Marbles Inc.
The Committee arose from our Chairman Emanuel J Comino’s first encounter with the Parthenon Marbles, held in the British Museum, London in 1976.
He recounts how he noticed so many wonderful Greek antiquities in the various national museums and thought “So why are they here? They should be in Greece”.
Later he saw the Parthenon Temple in Athens and was struck by the tragedy of the Parthenon Marbles sitting forlornly in foreign lands. He decided, they must be returned home to Greece, it became an obsession with him.
At the 1981 National Convention of AHEPA the first committee in the world dedicated to the return of the Parthenon Marbles was established with the support of AHEPA.
