Emanuel J Comino AM, Founder and Chairman
Emanuel Comino has spent the last thirty years travelling Australia and the world, presenting lectures and arguing the case for the return of the marbles. “I will fight on as long as I live, he says “until England promises to send the marbles back to Greece. I will continue to work for their restitution until the day I die. They were and remain an integral part of the Parthenon as a monument to the glory of Classical Greece and the civilisation it gave to the world.” Learn more
