Armenian Soviet Heritage

Stefano Perego takes a photographic journey through the whole country to document the modernist buildings and the war memorials built during the Soviet times. Architectures with a powerful visual impact and charm, patterns, concrete and tuff, forgotten ruins and desolated scenes which tells a lot about an era and its artistic value.
