The Latin Community honours Glafkos Clerides with event at the Latin Centre

The Latin Catholic Religious Group paid tribute to the contribution of the late President of the Republic Glafkos Clerides to its constitutional recognition.

According to a press release, the event was hosted on June 19 by the Representative of the Latin Community in the House of Representatives Antonella Mantovani.

The event included photographs of the late President Clerides dating from the 1960s onwards which demonstrated the long-term relationship of Glafkos Clerides with the Latin Catholic Community. The speeches paid tribute to Glafkos Clerides as a politician and as a friend of the Latin Community.

Attendees also had the opportunity to view the personal collection of Murano and other European glassware that Mr and Mrs Glafkos Clerides started, following a visit to Murano, Venice. The collection, donated by the family, will be permanently displayed at the Latin Centre, a venue which is used for events to highlight the importance and presence of the Latin Catholic Religious Group in Cyprus through exhibitions, meetings and cultural events.
