May 2022
Saturday 08:00 PM - 09:00 PM

The event is finished.

In May 2022, after four years of work, the Al Fadel minaret was restored to its original image. A team of 35 professionals from the Centro di Conservazione Archeologica of Rome carried out 2,200 days of work, using more than 2,000,000 tesserae in gold, colored glass and white marble with the aim of restoring the historical and cultural identity of the minaret. The conference will tell the story of the restoration and the study process and make public the technical and cultural hidden aspects of a project that will remain as the history of this city.

Where memory is the house of culture and knowledge; where the original council, separated by a cultural sidewalk that connects Muharraq with the intellectuals and writers of the world. The house itself, located at the heart of the city, opens its doors to cultural production in the fields of thought, literature, politics, philosophy, culture and art.
