some of the writer's personal belongings and those of his family, documents, letters, the first Greek
editions of his books, and translations in 49 languages in 54 counties, photographs, busts, works of
art, as well as documents referring to stagings of his theatrical works and of novels adapted for the
theatre, posters, programmes, models of stage settings and costumes as they have been presented
in performances all over the world. The museum also possesses a significant archive including radio,
television and press material related to the writer both from Greece and abroad.
Audiovisual means in five languages - Greek, French, English, German, Dutch - illustrate
further the development of this universal writer's life and career.
