    Historic Preservation in Sub-Saharan Africa

    A growing interest in the restoration of art removed from sub-Saharan Africa led to the Italian government's return of the Aksum Obelisk to Aksum, Ethiopia, in 2006. Italy had removed the obelisk in 1937 and erected it in Rome as the centerpiece of a traffic circle in front of the Ministry for Italian Africa.
