The Museum of Marble Crafts, in Pirgos, on the island of Tinos, is a unique example presenting the technology of marble, a material that holds a particular place in the architecture and art of Greece, from antiquity through to the present. The permanent exhibition, which describes the intricate meshing of tools and techniques used in working marble in a detailed and live manner, puts an emphasis on the pre- and proto- industrial Tinos, the most important centre of marble crafts in Modern Greece. In parallel, it highlights the social and economic context that the local workshops evolved in.

The Piraeus Bank Group Cultural Foundation (PIOP) supports the preservation and showcasing of Greece’s cultural heritage, with an emphasis on its artisanal and industrial technology, and promotes the connection of Culture with the Environment.
