Piazza is the vibrant and oldest part of Addis Ababa. During the Italian occupation, a new master plan for Addis moved the markets in Piazza to Merkato area and major economic and business offices to the National Theater area. The Italians built their houses in Piazza and it became a popular meeting and entertainment place with cinemas, theater halls, cafeterias, bars, hotels booming out. To this day Piazza has the unique feature that remained from the 20th century. The photo series shows how people living in Piazza now use the houses built by the Italians. These pictures include interiors of houses owned by contemporary artists, high officials during the Haile Selassie III regime, a house bought from an Italian by an Ethiopian and Egyptian couple whose families lived in the house from generation to generation. Two of the houses featured are registered as heritage by the city administration.
