In several areas of Africa, when entering the territory of another tribe, one is required to bear a special "passport mask". This has a profound meaning: to neutralise one's roots and individuality as a sign of respect to those whose territory is being entered. In this there is an ancient wisdom, the sublimation of humanity's neutral essence. Quoting Aeschylus Agamemnon "Provided they respect the temples and the Gods of the vanquished, then shall the victors be saved".

New Project Award Jordania - Petra

Another great success for ARS Progetti spa, with the award of the project Technical Assistance for the Design of public space interventions connected through pedestrian passageways within Wadi Musa and the Petra Archaeological Park.


💡  Tourism industry is one of the most important factor for social and economic development of Petra Region and Wadi Musa urban area. Petra Archeological Park, being an international bespoken destination, plays in this framework a major role. Wadi Musa is the town adjacent to the main antiquities site of Petra. It is the largest town in the region. Wadi Musa includes most of the Region's tourist services and government buildings.


🔶 The proposed project in Wadi Musa and the Petra Archaeological Park (PAP) includes a series of public space design interventions that are connected through pedestrian passageways.

⭕⭕⭕ This project is composed of two main components:

⭕ Component 1 is a unified pedestrian experience that connects Wadi Musa Town with the Petra Archaeological Park and the Commercial Street right next to the entrance of the Park 2.

⭕ Component 2 is another series of connected public spaces that starts at the entrance of the Petra Archaeological Park, which includes public space design all around the Petra Museum, re-designing of the horse stables at the entrance of the Archaeological Park to provide a genuine tourist experience there; a pathway that accommodates different lanes (for pedestrians, horses, and special transportation); panoramic lookouts; places for tourists to rest; places to hold bazars; and other public spaces.

🎯 The overall objective of this assignment is to provide Technical Assistance to support the Petra Development & Tourism Region Authority regarding the “A Series of Public Space Design Interventions that are Connected through Pedestrian Passageways within Wadi Musa and the Petra Archaeological Park”.
