The Museum of Industrial Olive-Oil Production of Lesvos presents the industrial phase of olive-oil production in Greece. It focuses on the changes brought about by the introduction of mechanical motion on the process of olive-oil production and approaches the contribution of the region’s inhabitants to the production process with sensitivity.
Its objective is to showcase our industrial heritage in the sector of olive-oil production and incorporate it into the broader architectural, social and cultural context of the period. The Museum is housed in the old communal olive press of Aghia Paraskevi on the island of Lesvos.
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.
