As part of our efforts to document the cultural and architectural heritage of Alexandria, the Description of Alexandria team will begin publishing a regular issue, titled The Journal. Our first installment documents the Casa Di Riposo (The Retirement Community of Chatby). The Journal incorporates sketches of the retirement community, focusing on individual aspects of the building in addition to the place overall. Within the issue, you will also find information about the building’s history and the impact of the Italian community in Alexandria through the years. The Description of Alexandria team hopes you enjoy this issue and we look forward to providing further documentation of the cultural and architectural heritage of Alexandria in future issues of The Journal.
