National Theatre of Albania, Tirana, ALBANIA

national.theatreThe National Theatre of Albania, one of the most prominent cultural centres in Albania and an important social and public space in its capital Tirana, now faces the imminent threat of demolition. The Theatre, built in 1938-39, is an outstanding example of modern Italian architecture from this period and is an integral urban component of the monumental central axis of the city. The construction technique was based on the use of prefabricated panels with cemented wood fibre as part of the Autarky movement in Italy and is considered innovative for its time.
Europa Nostra has already publicly expressed its sincere concerns regarding the decision to replace the Theatre with a new contemporary building. Plans to destroy it have been met with popular protests supported also by experts, who are urging the city to make full use of the Theatre’s existing potential for the cultural and social enrichment of Tirana. The nomination of the National Theatre by the Gjirokastra Foundation is part of this wide civil society campaign to save the building.

Belgrade Fortress and its Surroundings, SERBIA

Belgrade.FortressThe Belgrade Fortress, an iconic symbol of the city, is threatened by a harmful cable car project which would drastically compromise the integrity of the site.
The Belgrade Fortress is one of the most important cultural monuments in the Republic of Serbia, with the Fortress and its surrounding landscape having borne witness to the presence of humans since the Neolithic Period, as evidenced by the remains from Celtic, Roman, Byzantine, Hungarian, Bulgarian and Serbian Middle Age periods as well as the Ottoman and Habsburg Empires.
The Belgrade Fortress and its Roman archaeological heritage (Ancient Singidunum) are on the Tentative List of UNESCO as part of the biggest pan-European transnational world heritage property, the Frontiers of the Roman Empire. The Kalemegdan Park, located at the Fortress, is much loved by the city’s residents and its extraordinary position overlooking the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers offers protected viewpoints of outstanding beauty. The nominator of the Belgrade Fortress and its surroundings is Europa Nostra Serbia.
