Tsitsani’s Museum – Musically framing history

Rebetica songs came from across the sea and arrived in Trikala, describing a society that experienced sorrow, which is expressed through their sounds and lyrics. Many artists from Trikala launched this kind of music and contributed to its development, with Vasilis Tsitsanis being the one who introduced the chapter of folk music.
Tsitsani’s Museum is a complete narrative of the career of this leading musician, who was born in Trikala. In fact, this building has its own great history, since it was transformed from the old prison of the city into an area of culture and creation.
On the ground floor, there is a themed venue where the long-standing service of the prison is presented through prisoners’ projects or objects from hard everyday life of that time. In this way, visitors can gradually see every single stage of this transformation while, after visiting the Museum, they also have the chance to participate in a number of cultural, informational, and social activities that are held in a place that is now accessible to everyone.
It is actually connected with an Ottoman Hamam, which was “hidden” for years beneath the prison cells.
