On the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the Greek Revolution, the Research Center for the Humanities has been planning and coordinating the creation of a new digital platform that will host a variety of material (archive, text, visual, sound, audiovisual) covering all facets of the 1821 Greek Revolution.
In order to bring this application to life, the Center has been collaborating with the following reputable entities, aiming to seek out more collaborations as the project unfolds:
- General State Archives
- National Library
- Library of the Hellenic Parliament
- National Institute of Research
- Benaki Museum
- The “Captain Vassilis and Carmen Konstantakopoulos" Foundation
Supporting this effort, the “Captain Vassilis and Carmen Constantakopoulos" Foundation agreed to digitalize the rich collection of works available at Costa Navarino, so that they can be incorporated into the digital platform. The photo shoot took place on September 9, 10, and 11, on the premises of Costa Navarino.
The “Captain Vassilis and Carmen Constantakopoulos" Foundation, in line with its founding values, wishes to contribute to the Center’s ambitious plan, which is to create a digital repository comprising exhibits related to the Greek War of Independence.
