Extravagant structure in the form of airplane. Built in the late 30's of the XXth century this is the best example of italian futuristic architecture in Asmara.

essential, a perfect example of the Italian colonial era that left the streets and neighborhoods of Asmara full of beautiful buildings, palaces, theaters, restaurants and hotels

Incredible architecture and futuristic style considering it is almost 80 years old! It looks like an airplane! It is currently fenced up, a few decrepit cars parked inside, and a sign saying that it is under refurbishment although there is no visible works in progress.

interesting place to look at, but unfortunately rather poorly maintained and surrounded by fencing so was difficult to get much of an impression

If you like Art Deco , Asmara is your place to go. Fiat Tagliero is one of the best preserved examples.
