Representatives from the Municipality of Serres, the Municipality of Petrich, the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, the Democritus University of Thrace and the Managing Authority of “Interreg V- A“Greece-Bulgaria 2014-2020” attended the meeting.
The project’s main aim is the creation of two museums in the cross-border area, the thematic museum Constantin Xenakis in Serres and the Multi-faced museum of Petrich, which aspire to act as poles of attraction with considerable benefits for the area. The new museums will act as a platform for the development of two abandoned army camps into Cultural Parks of international interest, housing cultural heritage treasures of the two areas.
As far as the renovation of the two buildings is concerned, exemplary interventions concerning their access by disabled persons and their energy performance will be utilized. In particular, the building of the thematic museum Constantin Xenakis will become a Nearly Zero Energy Building and act as an example of such an implementation for the area.
