Description

Tirana is my most beloved city. It is the place where I was born, and where I grew up. It is a real fact that today Tirana oneis is one of the newest, most dynamic and most interesting European Mediterranean cities. The favourable geographical position has put Tirana, over the centuries, as a connector city between the significant events that have taken place between the East and West, in that part of the Western Balkans. This position has identified it as the place where different religions, extreme ideologies, heartless wars, great empires, ancient traditions, and exotic cooking tastes were crucified. Dynamic contemporary developments following the communist dictatorship have turned the city of Tirana into a fashion catwalk, with special architectures designed by the most popular international and local architects. Tirana is facing a strong renewal of its urban DNA, so much so that every urban and architectural component is fluid and is undergoing transformation, almost in an unstoppable way.
