Is it necessary to destroy old down-town in the name of civilization (science-fiction)???Sorry for my comment but destroyng is like to make war (destroy)so to re-build when war is over and stating: war is necessary to push civilization into a new-deal!war is necessary to kill bad peoples.

Thanks a lot, David!
And thank you, Giulio, you needn't to bother, of course I understand; and I think the same. The owners are to be paid, the problem is worse with the tenants. In terms of history, they will restore some and renovate others to keep the old texture and air, but it will never be the same.
Regards,
Nezih

I'm sad to know such stories. The same occurred in Florence 200 years ago!I read the story and I could't understand reasons of that choice. Today many historicians and architectures talk about a "crime"against history, peoples and town...but "the show must go on"...I suppose.Thanks that you're not angry with me.
