In the historic village of Viniani the “Government of the Mountain,” the first government of Greece, was established on March 10, 1944.The village Viniani was once the capital of Independent Greece. Aris Velouchiotis and Napoleon Zervas met here on November 22, 1942 and talked about their plan to blow up Gorgopotamos Bridge. Today the locals are trying to transfer the museum in the old school building in order to preserve the memory of the events that shaped modern history. The museum houses photographs and documents from that period and is located in Old Viniani which was abandoned on February 6, 1966 after a devastating earthquake. It is approximately 38km far from Karpenisi.
