Le caire la renaissance d'une Ville aux editions de la martinière

One thousand and one nnight in Cairo

* Fallen in oblivion when the European city was built at the end of the XIXth century, historic Cairo is thriving again. An army of workers, architects, engeneers and restorators is involved in the salvation of Tulunid, Fatimid, Ayyubid, Mameluk and Ottoman Cairo.

* In 2008, more than 140 monuments, mosqs, madrasas, hospitals (Maristan) public baths (Hammam) foutains (sabils) palaces and caravanserai (wakala), surrounded by Salah ed din's wall, excavated between al-Azhar University and the Citadel will be opened to visitors.

* With a budget worth 350 million US dollars, the Supreme Council of Antiquities of Egypt and the Ministry of Culture, backed by the Aga Khan Foundation with an 75 million US dollars have achieved a truly pharaonic enterprise.

* Philippe Flandrin (writer) and Michel Setboun (photographer) have extensively covered the renovation of historic Cairo in April, June, December 2006, and again in February and November 2007. Acquired and published by Paris Match and GEO France, this special report is ready for further publication.

* An exclusive and unusual cover-story with maps, charts, and special interviews with His Highness Karim Agha Khan, Dr. Zahi Hawass, and other leading archaeologists.

La renaissance du Caire historique
Le Caire est aujourd'hui la plus grande ville du monde arabe et du continent africain. Abandonné aux défavorisés depuis la seconde moitié du XIX e siècle, quand la "ville européenne" prit son essor, le Caire historique, « la ville mère du monde » vit aujourd'hui sa renaissance. Les palais et les mausolées des Mamelouks, les couvents soufis, les mosquées du vendredi, les fontaines, les hôpitaux et les bains publics, le rempart de Saladin enfin retrouvent leur splendeur perdue. De la mosquée de l'Abbasside Ibn Tulun (IXe) à celle de l'Ottoman Khatkuda (XVIIIe) plus de dix siècles d'art, d'architecture d'urbanisme et d'histoire - un patrimoine sans égal dans le monde musulman - surgissent des décombres .
