Washington – US news channel (CNN) devoted its November episode of “Inside the Middle East” to explore the different facets of Moroccan culture, considered a “special blend of authenticity and modernity.”
Led by CNN-International reporter, Hala Gorani, “Inside the Middle East” explores each month the authentic traditions of the Middle East and the world. The show went to Casablanca and Fez to highlight the splendor of the diverse culture of Morocco that is proudly attached to its traditions and open to the virtues of modernity.
In Casablanca, the show shed light on the majestic grandeur of the Hassan II Mosque, the civilizational monument that combines all the components of traditional Moroccan arts, and reflects the talent of Moroccan craftsmanship and Arab-Islamic architectural art.
In the spiritual capital of the Kingdom, the show walked through the endless streets of the Fes Medina which is full with its busy merchants and their products before embarking on the discovery of the traditional tannery, another facet of ancient engineering and pluralistic Morocco.
