The main hall focuses on the landscape of Mani and the ways in which locals managed to adapt to this rugged land and tame the abundant stone to their benefit. Lifestyles, local products and means of collecting, producing and processing these products are presented through photos taken by G. Vourlitis as well as through other exhibits.
The cultivation and promotion of local products is particularly important in the current economic climate. The original taste and value of the products of Mani remains the same through the years. The modernization of the primary sector and the production of high quality nutritional products such as olive oil, honey and prickly pears are the key to restarting the local economy and improving competitiveness.
