The Marubi Museum promotes a rich dialogue between tradition and modernity, between the past and the present. The legacy of the tradition is underlined by restoring the historical building in Shkodër while preserving its spatial and structural qualities without any volume transformation or new interior partitions. Conceptually, the building of Marubi Museum becomes an important “object” of the exhibition to be shown, contemplated and visited.
