The works for the requalification of the Kinostudio Center, to transform it into the new urban center of Tirana, are continuing at a fast pace. The project, which is shared between the Ministry of Culture and the Municipality of Tirana, has created several urban parks that have never existed before which will bring cultural activities for exhibitions, for films and various installations in the Kinostudio area.

The Mayor of Tirana, Erion Veliaj, who saw the works closely, said that it is a transformation that will bring a super-value to the area.

"I am sure that the residents have been waiting for the paving of this part, for traffic to be freed and then to work on the Kinostudio roundabout, where 'Aleksandër Moisiu' joins 'Xhanfize Keko'. The project will really turn this park into an art park and of course, it will bring a super value to the area", said Veliaj.

He said that in addition to the center of Tirana, a significant increase in the number of tourists is also observed in the peripheral areas. "More and more tourists are coming to Kinostudio. Tourists from the center of Tirana are coming to see the cinema at Marubi, to see the Weapons Museum, but they will also come for the installations that we will have here. We have seen that, where we have art and culture projects, such as the "Max Velo" cinema in Laprakë, the whole neighborhood starts buzzing, that events start like what is happening today at Cinema Agimi. The return of this art institution to the hands of the municipality and its revitalization has produced a series of extraordinary activities", said Veliaj.
