In the bicephalous city of Tunis, « Arab » on the Medina side , « European » on the Marine quarter side, modernity made its appearance with the advent of the XXth century in the form of an architectural style that first emerged in Brussels in 1893, and was known as Art Nouveau. For over fifty years, this style flourished on the façades and inside buildings that gave the European city a breath of life in stark contrast to the banality of an architecture that might have been functional but was hardly aesthetical.
A commentary on the buildings of this style scattered around the modern city.
