Protocol Signed for Restoration of Iconic Atatürk Culture Center

Culture and Tourism Minister Ertuğrul Günay signed a financial protocol with Sabancı Holding Chairwoman Güler Sabancı yesterday, regarding the restoration of the historic Atatürk Culture Center (AKM) located in Istanbul’s Taksim Square.

Günay said the AKM would be renovated faithfully to its original form, adding that only infrastructural changes are being considered.
