Tayyip Erdogan, Prime Minister of Turkey 4 January 2011 “…I wish to extend a personal appeal to you to reconsider the decision to flood the unique Roman Spa settlement of Allianoi and thus to prevent such a cultural tragedy from happening. We are numerous who strongly believe that saving the ancient site of Allianoi would bring lasting and sustainable benefits to the local population in Turkey. (…) saving this ancient treasure would enrich us all, the people of Turkey as well as the other Europeans, for generations to come. Moreover, instead of disappearing under the water, a site of such archaeological importance like Allianoi can become a powerful asset for a sustainable local tourist development, with the creation of many new jobs..” Plácido Domingo, President of Europa Nostra
