About Us

 

No too late for Chios, be part of BACK TO CHIOS

The Chian Historic Diaspora

...They were the first who have implemented these fruitful initiatives, this business genius, now so widespread in all major cities in Europe, where one is almost sure, among the larger houses, to meet one which was founded by a Greek, and even more particularly, by a Chian.- (Le Gaulois, Friday, September 19, 1884).

From ancient times to the Massacre (1822), Chios has been known for its natural beaurty, architectural elegance, maritime industry, production of mastic, wine and commerce. As a result, Chios had become a cosmopolitan society with a wealthy population of more than 130.000 inhabitants and had noble families from Constantinople and Genoa.
