You can't change the past. The burned books are gone. But you can make sure that past does not repeat itself. Finding peace with the neighbours is essential for that.

Then restoring these great icons and cities will not be in vain.

The revitalizations of Sarajevo are really impressive.
Once a beautiful city, and still a beautiful city

I'm jealous.
These cities get amazing restorations, whereas in Constanta there are still buildings collapsed from 70 years ago. Our most famous building, the Cazino, is in terrible shape, empty and with broken windows. It's sickening.

I think the most unbelievable development in my lifetime has been the fall of the communist states of Eastern and Central Europe and the subsequent revival of their incredible architectural heritage. Despite the masses of hideous concrete blocks put up between 1960 and 1990 much of the old centres of the cities of these countries remained, albeit in a derelict state, but now they rise again like the phoenix! Traditional styles once again triumph over modernity (though of course some modern buildings are extremely good, but there are not enough I fear)

Milan, Brera district in the 1970s and now. The pictures should have been taken at the same place.

Milan, via Moscova, in the central district. This area had been bombed in WWII.

1979 and now.

The first one is more like devastation...

The second one looks odd. Is it some kind of reconstruction? How old is this building?

Yeah, exactly, especially the roof and the plaster with its colour and lack of rustication. Same thing with the signboard... it isn't nice at all. However, building seems to be repaired and waits for better times, I guess.

I really like the first one...
I think the second one is a complete reconstruction. The old structure looked too deformed to hold the windows properly. Looks too Asian, though.

You like the first one because you don't see how it should look like.
And what the hell happened to the building on the left?


As to the second one - what does it matter if it was deformed considering original looks of the building?

Look at medieval timber framed houses, they are all deformed because of the age, but usually standing still if well preserved.

This one looks now like a weird blend of asian and south european medieval house with too regular row of windows.
But I asked how old is this building.

Anyway, do you have some kind of heritage conservator with which the works are consult?
