Visitors will learn how these highly adapted hunters came to dominate their marine environment, becoming the top predators millions of years before sharks were.The travelling exhibition includes 20 handmade models coming from a collection of over 150. Each model is constructed after extensive research and paying attention to every detail, even to the wood used during each historic period. The history of navigation in the Aegean and Mediterranean seas is a fascinating narrative of sea voyages, shipbuilding accomplishments, dissemination of ideas and technological development. This exhibition is a presentation of the history of shipbuilding and seafaring, from antiquity to modern times and is presented through 35 beautifully handmade and historically accurate ship models. The models were constructed by Mr. Dimitris Maras, M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering and model shipbuilder who turned his hobby into a full-time passion. He has studied the naval architectural history of the Greek world, searching old records for details about both the designs and the methods of construction. His model vessels, all hand made in the wood used during each historical period, vary in size from 1 ½ ft. to 6 ft. and are exact replicas to the smallest detail. Mr. Maras’ attention to detail extends even to the parts of his ships that are hidden to the viewer. The size and exceptional quality of these models help the viewer to better understand the evolution of shipbuilding among the people of the Mediterranean, from antiquity to the mid-20th century, through an imaginary voyage in time.
The exhibition, created in collaboration with Contemporanea Progetti, is a fascinating journey through the sea. The trade routes, the expansion of a great super power in the Mediterranean sea, the greatness of the Doges, the splendor of the most famous among the Maritime Republics.

Culture and power entwined to tell a story filled with twists and grandeur, with sea as the main character, exploring the legend of Venice, of its rulers and the challenges of the contemporary city as a destination of mass-tourism.
