Stephen Fry is known for his philhellenic ideas. Watch this video and his amazing speech about the return of the Parthenon Marbles to their rightful owner: Greece.
Fry comments: “The stone quarried from Mount Pentelikon, the dazzling white pentelic marble from which the Parthenon is made, is for Greece what the marble of Carrara was for Michelangelo and it belongs in its homeland, it expresses it. There really is such a characteristic as terroir. Which is why something as disgusting as retsina tastes so delicious on a beach in Patmos and so horrific in a warm kitchen in Wincanton”.
Fry stresses out that none of his fellow countrymen can feel really proud of his country if the Greek Marbles are not returned to where they belong.
