Guinea Heritage 2020

Guinea Heritage 2020

PG2020 was created in 2012, with the aim of revitalizing the architectural, urban and landscape heritage of Equatorial Guinea. The country is undergoing a process of redefinition associated with a far-reaching economic and social transformation due to oil production. The indigenous population belongs to the Fang, Bubi, Ndowe, Fernandino and Annobonese cultures, which have been closely linked to their natural territory, developing different habitats and enclaves. Centuries of colonization produced towns and cities, architectures and landscapes that were far removed from local traditions. This colonial legacy is now heritage, too. Due to economic and social transformations, and the change in mentality, both traditional and colonial heritage are stigmatized and very fragile. Knowledge of them is the basis for their appropriation by the various agents involved in all the activities.
