^ This question might sound weird...

Was there a master plan for Albanian reconstruction after WWII? All the towns and cities I've seen seem to have similar main squares - almost identical, in some cases.

Good question
Many cities in Albania have main squares.They were designed like this before World War 2 and i think before World War 1 for that matter.
Kavajë for example is an older city than Tirana and it's interesting to see it has a main square giving you the thinking that main squares have been built in many places besides Tirana.
Tirana was designed as a capital city.
They acctually created a masterplan for the city back in the early 20's.
I believe italian architects were involved on that project , i am not quite sure.
After World War 2 i cannot think of any city in Albania to have had a masterplan.
They already had the basic structure.
During communism they changed the structure of the cities by building commie apartment buildings.

THe Tirana main square was built with help from the Italian fascist asrchitects. That's why there is an air of megalomania and its foolishness. I think however, in the future, as they will remove all traffic from it, it would be a great place for people to meet, children to hang out, musicians, festivals, and businessmen to walk as 12 skyscrapers are being built around it.
