The Albania's National Hero, Gjergj Kastriot Scanderbeg memorial in Lezha is heading towards full degradation and the need for an intervention is immediate. The memorial’s roof has been completely damaged and the rain drops penetrate inside while the wall of this premise of particular relevance shows some discrepancies in the eastern side.
The Director of Cultural Heritage in Lezha, Paulin Zefi declared that the project for the memorial’s reconstruction and lighting sysem restoration is nearly completed while the financial endorsement remains a problem.
“This project will be presented to the Prime Minister and the Minister of Culture. Let’s hope in their cooperation and financial endorsement, because Lezha’s city hall has neither the financial instruments nor the competencies to act alone,” said Zefi.
Scanderbeg’s memorial in Lezha is one of the most important historical heritage sites, but no restoration process has been completed since its construction a few years ago.
