2016: Metamorphosis: The SNFCC to the World
In June 2016, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) in Athens, once again, opened its doors to the public for four days and nights of cultural events under the title Metamorphosis: The SNFCC to the World. The SNFCC, designed by renowned architect Renzo Piano, includes the new facilities of the National Library of Greece (NLG) and the Greek National Opera (GNO), and the 210,000 m² Stavros Niarchos Park.
From June 23rd to 26th, the SFNCC came to life, and it transformed itself into an open and accessible space for everyone, as the four-day event embraced performances and other programs by internationally renowned artists from Greece and around the world. This was a living space of ideas, exploration and interaction through an innovative program of cultural, athletic and educational actions for all age groups.
In tandem, visitors had the opportunity for the first time, to enter the new premises of the Greek National Opera and National Library of Greece, as well as to enjoy the Stavros Niarchos Park in its entirety.
