Date Issued



"The exhibition aims to underline the role of the merchant and warship fleet in the successful outcome of the Greek War of Independence. Through the presentation of archival documents and historical museum objects, as well as digital applications, the exhibition follows the events from the prerevolutionary years until the Battle of Navarino in 1827.
Visitors have the opportunity to view archives, documents and objects from the General State Archives collection, the largest collection of archival material about the War of Independence. Documents and objects have also been kindly loaned by the State Archives of Naples and the family collection of Dimitris and Androniki Kostopoulos.
Innovative digital applications complete the visitor experience. The Battle of Navarino is represented through digital models and virtual walkthroughs on historic ships, developed by the NAVS Project team under the guidance of the School of Naval Engineering, National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) and the Eugenides Foundation. The Institute of Information and Communication Technologies (IPTIL) also created digital and virtual applications as part of the Epanastasis 1821 Project. "
