Photographic exhibition “Metsovo 1900”
Opening 17 May 2015 at 12 noon.
Baron Michael Tossizza Foundation in collaboration with the Museum of Greek Folk Art, on the occasion of the celebration of “The Museum Day 2015” invite you to the opening of “The Bath House of the Winds”, Plaka.
The exhibition shows how people lived in Epirus at the turn of the 20th century, over 100 years ago. Featuring reenactments of everyday life in Metsovo in the early 20th century, Myrto Papadopoulou’s photographs take us on a journey to a time of historic change that transformed the Pindus mountain range communities. Straddling East and West and embracing new values and habits, Metsovo in the 1900s uncovers a world brought together through solidarity, self-governance, education and patronage; principles still relevant today. Τhe photographs were taken in Metsovo in December 2014, for an innovative project showcasing the Metsovo Folk Art Museum, run by the Baron Michael Tossizza Foundation. It includes an online platform featuring reenactments of life in Metsovo in the 1900s, a short history of Epirus and a virtual tour of the Museum’s rich collection.
