The Academy was the foremost intellectual institution of modern Greece, its mission being to promote the Arts and Sciences. The first discussions regarding its establishment took place during the meeting of the National Assembly at Argos (1826). The building, designed by the Danish architect Theophilos Hansen, began construction in 1859 on a site ceded by the Petraki Monastery and the municipality of Athens, with funds offered for the purpose by the Greek public benefactor, Baron Simon Sinas, which is why it is also known as the 'Sinaea Academia'. The Academy began to operate in 1926, and is constituted by three departments, Exact Sciences, Fine Arts Letters and the Moral and Political Sciences. Issue date: May 31, 2004
