The exhibition design is targeted at:

- Trasmitting the cultural and historical values of the collection and complement the function of the communal spaces of the hotels,

- Addressing the education of the visitors in the history of Greece and Messinia in the 19th century,

- Highlighting the works of art, while at the same time placing them within a tight building programme,

- Utilising construction standards and materials that minimise their footprint on the building, while at the same time provide adequate security for the collection,

- Employ techniques to efficiently use existing lighting fixtures to support the exhibition.

The project culminated in the editing of the publication "Histoire picturale de la guerre de l'independance Hellenique: Description of the original engravings exhibited at Costa Navarino", published and available on site.



The project concerns the organisation of a permanent exhibition for a private collection of historical paintings and artifacts situated at the premises of the Westin and Romanos Hotels in Costa Navarino.
