In Photos: Egypt launches second phase of initiative beautifying public squares

Nevine El-Aref , Sunday 3 Oct 2021

The second phase of the initiative launched earlier this year by the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities to develop and beautify public squares all over Egypt began Sunday in all Egypt’s governorates.



All the statues and art pieces decorating the squares will be cleaned and maintained by removing distorted writings and suspended dust using dry mechanical or wet cleaning, in addition to protecting metal, maintaining stone and reviving and gilding the text at their base.

Secretary-General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities Mustafa Waziri explains that this campaign aims to showcase the statues that adorn public squares and parks all over Egypt, whether archaeological or not, in an appropriate manner and to give them a civilized and aesthetic appearance. 

The work will last for about a month and will include about 80 squares in all the governorates all over Egypt.
