Set up in the courtyard of the Museo Novecento, the installation is part of the Alexandria Streets Project, an artistic initiative of “sonic mapping” that began in the namesake city's streets in the autumn and winter of 2012, nearly two years after the revolution of 2011, under the Mohamed Morsi presidency.

Individual audio excerpts which last an average of about 10 minutes investigate the relationships between people and space, constituting an archive of stories, voices, music and sounds that all capture a historic moment of an Egypt in transition. Listen closely to samples of the traditions that still color the city; sounds of animated post-revolution squares; bookshops, cafes and street booths that keep the memory of the old city alive, and more.
