Byzantine Museum of Halkidiki – Monastic complex of Nea Flogita

In the context of the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the Revolution of 1821, the Ephorate of Antiquities of Halkidiki and Mount Athos designed, organized and presented the periodic exhibition entitled: “The Revolution of 1821 in Halkidiki”, in the Byzantine Museum of Halkidiki – monastic complex of Nea Flogita.

By combining historical documentation with modern interactive and audio-visual technologies, the exhibition seeks to offer the visitor a unique experience, giving him the opportunity to be “virtually” at the centre of the events of the Halkidiki revolution, to enjoy exhibits such as weapons and accessories of the fighters, to study letters from the family archive of Emmanuel Papas, but also to obtain through an interactive multimedia application rich and documented information about the struggle of the revolution in the region.

The exhibition is structured in 2 sections:

In the first section, indicative objects of the fight (weapons, swords, swords, grapples, etc.) related to the sea and the land are presented. Also, it includes an interactive application in a projected digital “bank”, where all the informational content of the exhibition is gathered (Timeline, Biographies of heroes, Important battles, Heroes and Hero-Symbols and Symbolism, The technology of weapons and their relationship with the fighter).

In the second section, a 3D projection mapping installation is presented, which functions as a historical documentary that narrates the events of the Revolution in Halkidiki, also functioning as a virtual environment for the visitor and placing him in the “centre” of the events.
