Viapori Dockyard - A Bridge to the Future



Viapori Dockyard - A Bridge to the Future


Photo exhibition: Viapori dockyard – a bridge to the future

The Viapori dockyard in Suomenlinna boasts almost three centuries of uninterrupted activity. Where once galleys and war frigates where built, today ships with historical significance are repaired or restored.

The Viapori dockyard is a place where the future is built on historical foundations – a cultural heritage is kept alive for the future. The dockyard is the meeting point of different human experiences that developed during the history of Finland.

The photo exhibition leads the public to discover the dockyard, telling about men and ships; sounds and music create the atmosphere of the place. The historical section of the exhibition presents the history of traditional wooden sailing ships from the beginning of the 20th century to the 1970’s. The photographs of Jacopo Brancati tell about the passion, skill and friendship that keep a few of these ships alive

The exhibition idea and layout is by Infine Arts, France. The texts are by Sonia Olcese. All the photos are by Jacopo Brancati. The sound installation is made, and the music composed and performed by Arja Kastinen.

The exhibition has been produced by Viaporin Telakka Association, and has the support of Merikeskus Vellamo, European Maritime Heritage Association, the French magazine Chasse-Marée and The Society of Swedish Literature in Finland.


The photo exhibition is in the Suomenlinna Museum. Museum’s entrance fee:  adults 6,5/5 €,  children 7-17 years 4 €, children under 7 years free. Free admission with Helsinki Card.
