Eritrea: 6 days in the charm of Italian colonial architecture in Africa
trip organized by ALOA and Stella Errante | 6 CFPRegistration by March 30, 2019
Far from the tourist routes, Eritrea holds a unique architectural heritage in the world. ALOA, in collaboration with Stella Errante, proposes to discover it, from 14 to 20 September , on a journey through the Italian heritage still present in the area.
The itinerary begins in Asmara, the "Little Rome" , the colonial pearl of the fascist empire, declared World Heritage Site by Unesco , whose buildings built in the thirties by the Italians have been defined by the United Nations Organization "an example exceptional modernist urbanization ".
>From here you will have the rare opportunity to reach Massawa aboard the legendary "littorina" or the train driven by the Mallet steam locomotives of colonial times, one of the most daring railways in the world , which runs along mountains completely covered with plantations of prickly pears and breathtaking landscapes.
Before leaving for Asmara and ending the trip, I will spend a day in Massawa , a city that is now in decline while maintaining the undoubted charm of an ancient prestigious port on the Red Sea.
With this trip the organizers intend to promote an active comparison on the aspects of urban and rural architecture and to start sustainable interventions to enhance these resources for the economic and social development of Eritrea.
