|NICOSIA Nuove Nike Air Max 98 , July 28 (Xinhua) -- Several Cypriot monuments, among them the famed Othello Tower where Shakespeare set his drama “Othello”, are getting urgently need restoration after decades of neglect resulting from the protracted division of the eastern Mediterranean island.
The restoration of some 40 monuments, some of which date back to the Roman era and several others to the Mediaeval times, is practically the only tangible and hope-raising result of efforts to bring the Greek and Turkish Cypriot together after being split apart 40 years ago.
Cyprus has been ethnically divided since 1974 Nike Air Max 98 Saldi , after a Turkish military operation following a coup by Greek army officers and forcing the Greek Cypriot population to move to the south and Turkish Cypriots to the north.
Much of the island’s centuries’ old cultural heritage was left unattended and several monuments suffered the decay of times, some of them being destroyed on purpose, mostly Greek Cypriot Christian churches and sites.
The restoration is carried out by a bi-communal group set up in 2008 as part of efforts going on for almost four decades to reach a settlement reunifying Cyprus.
The Greek and Turkish Cypriot members of the Technical Committee for Cultural Heritage, as the group came to be known, have the backing of the leadership of their respective community Ingrosso Nike Air Max 98 , but they mostly act as individuals.
“We are not representatives of any institutions. We are and act as plain citizens who have come together to help individual people and salvage whatever we can from our common cultural heritage,” Greek Cypriot member of the Committee Takis Hadjidemetriou told Xinhua.
He said the secret of the group’s success is their common concern for Cyprus’s cultural heritage.
“We made a point of never attributing responsibility to any individual, group or community for the destruction of monuments. We came to realize that this is not productive and does not lead anywhere. We have a common interest for any monument which we perceive as belonging not only to Cyprus but also to the European and the world cultural heritage," Hadjidemetiou said.
The group made a list of 900 monuments, some of them dating to the Neolithic age 9 Nike Air Max 98 Scontate ,000 years back and some of them as recent as two centuries old. It then singled out 140 of them in need of a makeover.
Experts working for the group laid out plans for the restoration of 40 monuments in an imminent danger of suffering irreversible damage.
Currently undergoing restoration are two of the most important monuments, the Othello Tower keeping guard over the Famagusta port, and the Apostle Andreas Monastery on the far eastern tip of Cyprus.
The Othello Tower is part of the Venetian wall surrounding the old part of Famagusta city, which is inhabited by Turkish Cypriots. Its modern part along one of the finest sand beaches of the world, lined with high-rising hotels Nike Air Max 98 Italia , or what has been left of them, is a ghost city, fenced off since Turkish troops occupied Famagusta, driving out its 50,000 Greek Cypriot inhabitants.
The sandstone complex Nike Air Max Bambino Scontate , with four towers, is a maze of dark alleys, cellars and a large banqueting hall supported by vaulted roofs. The Tower has been ravaged by natural decay and neglect, with chunks of yellow sandstone missing entirely from parts of its facade.
The citadel will undergo stabilization work over the next eight months at a cost of 800,000 euros (1.07 million U.S. dollars). The money comes from a European Union Contribution of 4 million euros to the United Nations Development Program-Participation for the Future (UNDP-PFF) which manages the logistics of the restoration program.
One of the basic rules for restoration is that it is done by joint Greek and Turkish Cypriot consortiums Nike Air Max Donne Scontate , no matter where the monuments are.
“This is a practical way to promote confidence and cooperation between the two communities after being estranged for almost four decades,” said Hadidemetriou.
The study for the Othello Tower restoration was done gratis by a Spanish consultancy organization, Tecnalia, which is a non-profit institution specializing in monuments and their protection from erosion.
Rand Eppich, a conservator architect and International Project Manager for Tecnalia Nike Air Max Uomo Scontate , said the monument is unique in that it bears the marks of two conquerors of the city. It was originally built by the French Lusignans in the 14th century and was remade and expanded by the Venetians when they bought the place one century later.
The Venetians put their symbol - the winged lion of Venice - over the land entrance to the Tower and several other spots and inscribed the name of the city’s first Venetian commander, Nicolo Foscari, 1492.
“It is one fortress inside another. The defensive techniques of the two fortresses are quite obvious,” said Eppich, pointing to the arrow slits in the inner walls looking outwards to the Venetian addition to the fortification.
To make sure that the work is done properly Nike Air Max Nere Scontate , restorers will use original materials and mortar. They have searched and found and ancient quarry from which sandstone will be extracted.
“This place has stood for 500 years and it will be here for another 500 years,” Epich said of the project.
The Apostolos Andreas Monastery is a popular religious site for Christian Greek Cypriots, but it is also revered by Muslim Turkish Cypriots. Historical evidence of the church goes back 1,000 years, but the most recent building still standing is a small church dated in the 15th century. A larger church was added in 1855.
After the area - the Karpass peninsula - was occupied by Turkish troops in 1974 the place was left to decay Nike Air Max Bianche Scontate , despite the fact that it was visited by thousands of Greek and Turkish Cypriots, since the Turkish military allowed access to the occupied part of Cyprus in 2003.
