Bibliotheca Alexandrina – Faces, Muses, Arts and Culture

By

The Bibliotheca Alexandrina, or new library of Alexandria was inspired by the enormous repository of knowledge lost when the ancient library caught on fire during a battle with Roman General Julius Caesar and burned to the ground. This all-new library of Alexandria opened its physical doors to the world in 2002. Since then it has become an important focal point for the sharing of knowledge as a practical means of aiding an understanding between world cultures.
