Marrakech officially designated as the African Culture Capital of 2020

A display of modern-day metropolitan Africa that highlights the variety of African cultural expressions, Marrakech has recently been named the African City of Culture for 2020, the ochre city's mayor Mohamed Larbi Belcaid declared on Friday in Marrakech.

He praised the fact that Marrakech, a city that has been there for a thousand years and has been listed as both a material and intangible cultural property since 2001 and the medina since 1985, will be decorated in African colors in 2020.
