As a part of the Anniversary Activities of Piraeus Bank and with the anniversary of 200 years from the Greek Revolution in 1821, Piraeus Bank Group Cultural Foundation (PIOP) connects its power with the National Historical Museum (NHM) to present the temporary exhibition “REVOLUTION ’21 REFRAMED: CHIOS” which takes place at the Mastic Museum of Chios.

The destruction of Chios has a special place in the exhibition, as does the burning of the Turkish flagship by Kanaris, dramatic events that played a defining role in strengthening the movement of Philhellenism. The exhibition is completed with references to the integration of Chios in Greece.
The exhibition starts on July 4 until September 10. Ιτ is open every day from 10:00am to 18:00pm, except Tuesday, and takes place under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture and Sports.
