Colours of Medieval
Cyprus - Aspects of Daily Life 1191 - 1571. To celebrate the accession of Cyprus to the European Union on 1 May 2004 , the Hellenic Centre is hosting a unique exhibition of medieval glazed pottery, jewellery, rare maps, books and other objects presenting a fascinating insight into daily life on Cyprus at the time.

A crossroads between East and West for almost half a millennium, this small island shows the influences of Frankish nobles, Genoese traders, and Venetian lords. This innovative exhibition will take the visitor on a captivating journey showing varied aspects of medieval Cypriot life, mainly through the display of characteristic lead glazed and beautifully decorated pottery - wildlife, people at work, wedding scenes and much more are brought vividly to life.

Alongside the stunning ceramics are many exquisite maps - some from the
Correr Museum in Venice and a 1535 edition, translated in Italian by the Cypriot scholar Florio Boustronio, of The Assizes of Jerusalem, the code of laws enacted by the Crusaders for the government of the Kingdom of Jerusalem .

Organised by the Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia and the Hellenic Centre in association with the Ministry of Education and
