The Onassis Foundation's "House of Letters and Arts" was inaugurated late Tuesday in a ceremony attended by President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias.

The "House of Arts and Letters' is a multiplex facility that will project modern culture, support Greek artists and also contribute to the creation of international cooperations on culture issues.

Onassis Foundation president Antonis Papadimitriou stressed in his opening speech that the idea was inspired by the late shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis himself.

The inauguration ceremony focused on the projection of the people who worked on the construction of the building. Papadimitriou noted that that this particular projection aimed to stress the fact that art is addressed to everyone and that nobody is excluded from it.
