Fez Undressed by Alessandro Annunziata

Fez, in Morocco, the oldest of the four imperial cities, is divided into the new and the old city. Located in a mountainous region, the old town is characterized by the intricate streets, travelled only by people and donkeys, the only way of transport allowed and used by the locals. 

Fez, in Morocco, the oldest of the four imperial cities, is divided into the new and the old city.

Located in a mountainous region, the old town is characterized by the intricate streets, travelled only by people and donkeys, the only way of transport allowed and used by the locals. Tourists and locals mix confusedly in the chaotic days of Fes. In the heart of the Medina, in the center of the old city, stands the ancient mosque of Karaouine, which opens onto the immense bazaar that surrounds it.

Fez’s social and economic life revolves around the bazaar and the leather trade, dealt with in the 4 large tanneries that open up like glimpses in various parts of the city, and which impregnate the Fez air with the scent of the treated skin.

It was the first time for me that I visited Fez. The shape of the city, the narrow and dark alleys, which contrast with the noise and the crowd of bazaars, gave me the impression of Fez as a city dressed in an aura of mystery. So, in my own way, turning and discovering the city, I tried to undress this mystery, comparing it with the treatment of animal skins, of which they are undressed. For this reason: Fez Undressed.
