The Center of Mediterranean Architecture (C.A.M.) hosted the exhibition, from 11.8.2021 till 12.09.2021.The collection of G.N.T.O. posters belongs to Lefteris Labrakis who is a collector of many thematic posters, starting back from the first one dating back in 1926 depicting a photo of the Acropolis Propylae taken by the famous photographer Nelly’s.

The posters’ exhibition showed a great turnout of visitors, thanks to its high artistic value, since many of them are designed by world class Greek painters such as Moralis and Vasiliou. Another reason of interest was how these posters produced, in a time span of 70 years, a living testimony of the marketing and design evolution.
