Municipal authorities in the capital Tirana started the demolition of the National Theatre in the early hours of this morning, paving the way for the construction of a new theatre. A single blow was enough to bring down this building, thus indicating the weak material that this building was made of, mainly sawdust.
The construction of a new theatre had been requested by the community of artists for a long time. The demolition of the theatre and the construction of a new one also had its opponents, including a few artists and the opposition, who claimed the project was corrupt. TemA
