Ex Novo Cover Photo
For the launch of our first issue we have chosen as cover photo The Leader, a massive portrait of Enver Hoxha that in the early 1970s used to decorate the main entrance to the Palace of Culture in Scanderberg Square (Tirana). The original photograph taken by Niko Xhufka and then retouched by communist officials. In line with the theme addressed in 2016 issue 'The Impact of the Fall of Communism on European Heritage', The Leader will be the hallmark of our website till the launch of Ex Novo next issue in 2017.
