About this item

Scholars of architecture, urban planning, human geography, and sociology team up with photographers to explore the architecture of Asmara, the capital of Eritrea. They cover colonialism and modernity, the construction of the colonial sphere, Asmara's colonial architecture and urbanism, Asmara's cultural heritage, tracing postcolonialism, a geography of memories, city and migration, and Asmara's new images. Among their topics are colonial preliminaries: the genesis of Italian imperialism in the experience of the governance of Asmara, Asmara and Rome: architecture and urbanism of the ****** Italian Empire and their reception, mapping the past for the sake of the future: the Cultural Assets Rehabilitation Project, postcolonial utopia in Ermina Dell'Oro and Elise Kidané: visions of an ideal society in Asmara and beyond, and a city goes abroad: remembrance and hope in migration from Asmara.
