IN THE MAKING
The medina of Fez, this city where I come from, this city filled with history,
which fascinates me so much by its architecture, its craftsmanship and its culture.
I walk through its many streets and I am carried away in the past.
I smell many smells emanating from the ovens, markets and workshops.
I let a donkey pass, I take a tour of the tanneries, in the foundouks,
I push open the doors of all these riads and small palaces with architecture that takes my breath away.
Jewels testifying to the know-how and the richness of the Moroccan heritage.
I remain amazed in front of these sculpted plaster columns,
in front of these wooden ceilings and in front of these courtyards covered with a thousand small zelliges.
I would like to share with you part of this wonderful story.
I would like to show you the traditional technique of zellige artisans,
to show you with what precision they manufacture your decorations,
piece by piece, thanks to their unique know-how and the magic of their hands.
