The Stavros Niarchos Foundation finances the feasibility study, which is being conducted on the Benaki Museum's proposal regarding the future use and operation of the house and will recommend the necessary actions in order for the programme to be feasible and viable.

DISINFESTATIONS PROCEDURES
Recently, Roberto Calasso, writer and publisher of Adelphi. donated a significant amount for the urgent and essential works of the house. The amount will initially cover the disinfestations procedure, necessary for both the protection of the books and objects that remain in the house and the wooden elements of the buildings. For this reason, the house will remain closed for a large period during the summer.
