The Municipality of Nafplio and the Basil (Vassilis) Papantoniou Foundation (BPF), are organizing and presenting the exhibition of the Nafplian collector Mr. Christos Kostouros entitled "Greek advertisements and packaging boxes 1900-1970. Christos Kostouros Collection", in the cultural place of the BPF "Sofroni 13" in Nafplio.
The collection of Christos Kostouros is about his passion for saving authentic Greek advertisements and metal packaging boxes. His interest in acquiring them started from his teenage years, when he first saw them in black and white Greek movies and thus began a journey of searching for them, both in Greece and abroad. His collection is constantly being enriched with new objects and he feels that every time he acquires a piece, he saves a piece of culture. The fact is, that through the advertisements and the packaging boxes, one can discover a Greece of another era, more romantic, but also the passion of many businesses for quality and contribution in their country.
