ditional techniques and materials were employed to shore up the wooden floors, mortars, paints, decorative scenes, marble floorings, wooden doors and window frames, and other elements of the mansion. In addition, specialist conservators worked on conserving the wooden doors/window frames and furniture of the Mansion. Special care was also taken with regard to the surroundings of this historic building, of which the restoration and configuration were preceded by a special landscaping study to identify the flora that had been in the gardens during Admiral Kountouriotis’ era, followed by the planting of corresponding trees and plants. The successful completion of the restoration of the Mansion of Pavlos Kountouriotis was sealed in September 2001 with the re-placement of all the furnishings and portable objects which reflect the atmosphere of the era of Admiral Kountouriotis. The Museum was inaugurated on Saturday May 18, 2002. Text: V. Nestoridou
