Rigas' Charta (Artemis Scutari, Director of the Sylvia Ioannou Foundation)

Rigas' Charta is a huge map 2m. x 2m. It is consisted of 12 smaller independent maps which, when combined, show Balkan Peninsula in a whole with its place names as well as multiple mythological and historic mentions.
It was printed in 1797 in Vienna (Austria).

Charta embodies the vision of Rigas for a united balkan confederation, liberated from Ottoman domination. Creator of this special presentation, Artemis Scutari, director of the Sylvia Ioannou Foundation.
