Soufli, a town made of silk

In a building of unique style, known as Brikas Mansion by the name of the family that donated it to the Municipality for the establishment of a cultural space, the Municipal Museum opened its doors to the public in 2010.

The history of the city which is closely connected with the breeding of the silkworm is shown in the exhibition as well as the history of this society which worked and became wealthy by silk production. Aside from the interesting project and the acquaintance with the welcoming Soufli locals, it was a great joy for us to contribute to a cultural project in a remote greek province, far from the large urban centers that monopolize the cultural interest.
