Agip (Azienda Generale Italiana Petroli), the Italian petrol company, has this great little building on the outskirts of Asmara in Eritrea. Babel Fish tells me it is a chemical laboratory, but I reckon I could have had a stab at that without the help of a translator.
It is fair to say that the building is little more that a rectangular box but the steps leading up from the driveway have a certain style to them.
Of course the standout to me is the stylised lettering spelling out Laboratorio Chimico.
