Discover Realistic socialist art. Albania

Socialist realism with its epic frescos proclaiming the glory of the exemplary labourer, survived in this area for more than ten years. Its message no longer appeals to anyone, but its vigour is more and more of interest to art fans and remains an amusing curiosity to others. Its most representative productions live on in the streets, such as the front wall of the historic museum in Skanderberg Square. They are mainly grouped in the Tirana Art Gallery.

    The mosaics of its faēade, where the stylistic influences of socialist realism can clearly be seen, celebrate the nation's history.
