Albanian President Says Demolition of National Theater Should Awaken Albanian Society

Albanian President Ilir Meta supports Europa Nostra’s stance that the demolition of the National Theater by the government “marks the beginning of a real awakening of civil society in Albania, led by artists and intellectuals.”

In a Facebook post, Meta wrote: “Let this miserable event be the one to mark the beginning of a true awakening of civil society in Albania.”

On Sunday, May 24, Europa Nostra, addressed a letter to the Alliance for the Protection of Theater, recognizing its work in attempting to protect the National Theater and wished the event would rouse Albanian society.
