Symposion - a new beginningBy:
In 2011, we were presented with a remarkable opportunity to take on the interior restoration of a 13th century Venetian tower in the crumbling castle of Akrotiri, Santorini. Our idea was to create a workshop, exhibition and performance space to showcase our beloved instrument – the Greek bagpipe – the tsabouna. A year later, we managed to do just that. In the tower’s main chamber we created a unique exhibition of Greek bagpipes that highlighted the skilled craftsmanship of makers from Santorini and the Aegean region.
