Architecture in Eritrea

(Art Deco)

Asmara, the capital city of Eritrea, was an Italian colony between 1890 and 1941.

The city center was rebuilt in various styles during the colonial decades: Neo-Romanesque, Late Victorian, Art Deco, Cubist, Rationalist, Novecento and Neo-Baroque, among others.

This Modernist city in Africa was also a dream of Benito Mussolini, because he believed it would become the capital of the Second Roman Empire.
