ELEMENTARY SCHOOL OF KARTEROLI

The old Karteroli Elementary School was transformed into an exhibition center and a multi-purpose space for the promotion of the natural and cultural landscape of the Municipality of Messina.

Inside the exhibition space, the natural environment and agricultural production with an emphasis on the landscape and culture of the olive and olive oil that has characterized all the peoples of the Mediterranean over time and especially Messina, are presented. At the same time, the archaeological past, castles, historical monasteries and Byzantine monuments of the area are presented in a succinct way.
The museological flow is structured in two sections that communicate with each other by means of dioramas, imaginative scenery and modern digital applications. The richness of the thematic sections is presented with simplicity and modesty and the information is transmitted with ease and clarity, with simple shapes and colors in architectural and graphic design.
The Center was created in coollaboration with the company OIKOM Ltd.
