which is organized in the context of the implementation of the European Territorial Cooperation Programme "Greece-Italy 2007-2013" and the project entitled:

“Stone and Tradition”

The festival will take place on Friday the 4th and Saturday the 5th of April 2014, , in the "Hall of Literature and Art Dimitrios Hatzis" at the University Campus of Ioannina.


The purpose of the festival, but also of the actions of the Project in general, is the preservation and promotion of the craft of the stonemasons, enhancing cross-border cooperation and cross-border exchanges, as well as the increase in visiting traffic in the area. It also looks forward to the exchange of technical methods for improving and disseminating a traditional art such as the processing and carving of the stone which is lost over the years.
