Mussolinian architecture
Walking in the streets of the Italian district lets you have a sample of italian colonial architecture; there are Mussolinian buildings but also, beautiful buildings, houses, and the streets reveal a nice harmony.
An example of mussolinian building is this one (picture1), having an open air café at its base, on the Algeria square; another example are the columns on the sea-side of Al Khaddra square (picture2), and this building on First September street (picture3). I like the arched basements of the buildings on the streets sides like on picture 4, and Al Khaddra square has nice buildings (picture 5).
