ALGIERS- The city of Algiers is to hold a cultural week in Milan, Italy, from 20 to 23 September, to shed light on the various Algiers’ local arts, including Andalusian music, customs, traditional costumes and the capital’s culinary arts, Abdelmalek Zidi, an inspector at Algiers’ provincial administration has said.
The event comes as a result of the cooperation agreement signed in October 2015, between the cities of Algiers and Milan, Zidi told APS on Wednesday.
