Did you know that?
Engraving is the practice of incising a design onto a hard, usually flat surface by cutting grooves into it with a burin. The result may be a decorated object in itself, as when silver, gold, steel, or glass are engraved, or may provide an intaglio printing plate, of copper or another metal, for printing images on paper as prints or illustrations; these images are also called "engravings". Engraving is one of the oldest and most important techniques in printmaking.
The Alpha Bank Cultural Center in Nafplio, Greece, is located at the heart of the old town, near the Constitution Square. The building and its name have changed many times since 1880. Since its establishment as a cultural venue in 2006, it has attracted about 3,000 visitors every year. The Cultural Center has housed several parallel exhibitions of Ancient Greek coins and modern and contemporary Greek art, while it has also participated in the festivities held on the European Night of Museums and the annual International Museum Day, organized globally by the International Council of Museums (ICOM).
