Africa, Somalia, Mogadishu. 19/10/2015. A glimpse of the city: The destroyed structures of the old parliament in the Hamar Weyne district. The present of the Somali capital. Behind it, a civil war lasting 25 years; ahead of it, a future of rebirth. Mogadishu is at a crossroads. On the one side, the persistence of a surreptitious conflict based on a new, asymmetrical strategy of terror with Al-Shabaab, yet on the other, a desire for a return to normal life on the part of the Somali people, who are timidly seeking to carve out a role for themselves.
