Ionian Academy Corfu

weather forecast by weather.gr

The Ionian Academy Corfu on Kapodistriou street, served multiple purposes through the centuries. During Venetian domination, the facilities were the army quarters of Grimani, while in the times of English domination (1840), the Ionian Academy became the first Greek university in modern times. After the union of the Ionian Islands with Greece in 1864, the building was used as the Municipal Library of Corfu. On 14 September 1943 it was burnt by an Italian air raid.

Today it has been restored and it is used as the deanery of the Ionian University.Even though the Ionian Academy was beset with problems right from the inception, it produced numerous high quality graduates who contributed immensely to the intellectual evolution of modern Greece. This Academy rightfully occupies its pride of place in the academic landscape of the Ionian Islands and Greece in general.
