The sculptor Takis buys a 10 acre land in Gerovouno hill, located at the foot of mount Parnitha. It is a distinct geographic location, at a height of 175 meters- 19 meters higher than the Acropolis; thus in the past it was named “Holy Mountain”. Prompted by the strong magnetic fields of the hill, takis begins the construction of a nonprofit cultural organization, aspiring to promote the Arts and the Sciences. Ever since, the Takis Foundation has been the birthplace of Takis’ research and art. The Foundation aims to promote knowledge and appreciation of the visual arts to the general public, as well as to provide services, facilities and support programs for both education and contemporary art.
