December 28, 2019

TRIKALA, Greece – A mosaic of the great composer of laika and Trikala-native Vassilis Tsitsanis adorns the Tsitsanis Museum in his home town beginning on Christmas Eve.

This is an important contribution which offers another experience for the visitor to the Museum, says Trikala Mayor and KEDE President Dimitris Papastergiou.

As the Municipality noted in a recent announcement, it depicts and promotes Vasilis Tsitsanis a legend in Greek music with a place in the hearts of Greeks everywhere.

For months, its creators, Michalis Koufogiannis and Giorgos Kourmetzas, prepared it with thousands of mosaic pieces and the total measures18 square meters. The contribution of the two Trikala natives a few months ago was gladly accepted by the Municipality, as they had already created another mosaic at the “port” of the Lithaios river.

The Municipality of Trikala is also preparing the House of Trikala Artists. According to a related announcement, it is a digital interactive museum, dedicated to the other five Trikala natives and pillars of laika music Apostolos Kaldaras, Kostas Virvos, Giorgos Samoladas, Christos Kolokotronis, and Dimitris Mitropanos.
