ZAPPAS Evangelios - Greece
Wanting Greece to regain its cultural predominance, this rich trader had the idea, in the mid 19th century, of re-launching the Olympic games.The first games took place in Athens in 1859. Unfortunately for him, his generous venture did not spread further than the borders of his country.On his death, he bequeathed his fortune to "a commission for the Olympic games" whose task would be to re-establish the games, but the project failed once more.
