During the conference start on Thursday morning, the minister talked about the enormous contribution of the father of anatomy to science and art, but also on the occasion of the conference to the development of tourism in the country organizing such events and conferences. Zakynthos mayor Paul Kolokotsas welcomed all delegates and emphasized the contribution of Zakynthos leading forms of art, intellect and science, not only by those who were born on the island, but those who lived and created in Zakynthos and make it their second home.
