Amasili Complex Project aims to preserve and restore a historic Ottoman building and convert it into Cultural hub and museum. The objective is to ensure the preservation of the Amasili Complex for future generations by interventions that will slow the deterioration of the building and restoration of damaged areas. This will include rehabilitation of the rooms for meetings, research and exhibitions. The Amasili Complex is an excellent example of Ottoman architecture in Rosetta, and is thus capable of attracting academics and tourists. Therefore, it is destined to become a museum, exhibiting the different periods of occupation of the area. It will become a hub for all accredited archaeological missions working in the Western Delta, where knowledge will be shared among researchers and the public.
