Tales for children

The series "Tales for children", which is gradually being enriched with new publications, functions as additional material that supports the "Educational packs" and is addressed essentially at young children. The "Tales for chlidren", now also available to the general public as independent volumes, are based on folk tales and stories, as well as on traditional society's economic aspects and processes that relate directly to the PIOP Museums' themes. In other words, it concerns products such as olives and olive oil, materials such as marble and leather, their uses and their elaboration with respect to social needs. Consequently, the retelling of folk tales and their adaptation to contemporary situations is aimed at offering an insight into the pre-industrial production methods and traditional technology, such as waterpower, marble carving, etc.
