This is an art exhibition presented at the Public Art Gallery of Thessaloniki and Apothiki in Limnos.
An old symbol of a divine gift, wine spread in the Mediterranean area, claimed a prominent place in the traditions, beliefs and cults of the people, defined the area, the overall movement of goods and ideas, and became a unifying and integral element of cultures in the passage of centuries.
