Few words about the Mediaeval Castle of Pafos: It was originally built as a Byzantine fort to protect the harbour. It was then rebuilt by the Lusignans in the 13th century after being destroyed in the earthquake of 1222. In 1570 it was dismantled by the Venetians. After capturing the island, the Ottomans restored and strengthened it. Throughout the ages it has seen many uses. It has served as a fortress, a prison and even a warehouse for salt during the British occupation of the island. More recently the castle serves as a backdrop to the annual open air Paphos cultural festival which takes place in September. It was declared a listed building in 1935 and represents one of the most distinctive landmarks of the city of Paphos. Several archaeological excavations have taken place to investigate its past About the Exhibition: Through maps, charts, engravings, manuscripts and photographs, the Society of Cypriot Studies guides and informs the viewer about the commercial, economic, religious and cultural relationships, developed in the Medieval ports from Euxeinos Pontos to the Eastern Mediterranean. *The exhibition will be inaugurated by the Mayor of Paphos k.Faidonas Phaidon Saturday 11/07 at 10:30. – all the documents will be printed on approximately 100 posters.
Main problematics: 1.we could make enough wholes due to the historicallity of the building 2.if we pierced the wholes we would need to pierce only the joints (in between the stones and the highest we could go would be 2,45m which woudnt really be a problem!
The sort of posters that came in for the installation wasnt what i excpected but i persume it was the best soluteen to endure within an environment with constant humitity.
I went in different DIY shops to get the cheapest but yet the best solution..
( draft this post ) still need to include procedure during the installation days – edit some photos)
