Description

Berlin, after the reunification of Germany, has been able to reinvent itself and its own image. A constantly evolving city, rich in contrasts and unexpected occasions, suspended between the old and the new, between nostalgia for the past and enthusiasm for the future. From Mitte's hofe, the historic courts turned recreational places dedicated to exclusive living, to the Eastern quarters such as Prenzlauerberg, which escaped the devastation of the war and have been reborn thanks to colonisation by artists and creative people who arrived from all over the world. Or the upgraded and converted socialist buildings, the disused industrial spaces transformed into lofts, the new operations to suture the numerous urban voids of a city in which the scars of history have become opportunities for the future.show more
