Exhibition in Pylos
In the revolutionary struggle at sea, the Psarians, the Spetsiotes and the shipowners of Hydra dominated. Among the latter was Anastasios Tsamados who died heroically on April 26, 1825 during the Fall of Sfaktiria in the bay of Pylos. The traditional dress of Hydra, which is exhibited here in honor of island, is characterised by multi-layered sleeveless green silk dress with the velvet hem. A silk neckline covers the chest, along with a fitted silk jacket, while a triangular embroidered silk scarf is worn on the head. A similar composition of the costume of Hydra is presented by the costume of the nearby Ermionida, which is exhibited in Costa Navarino.
