During the fifty years of communist dictatorship in Albania  the Adriatic coasts were dotted with agave plantations in order to prevent a hypothetical attack by paratroopers while along all the territory started the constructions of bunkers made off concrete and steel. It is estimated there have been built about 750,000. Twenty years after the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the communist dictatorship , Albania is still characterized by the massive presence of his bunkers. Nevertheless, the bunkers have suffered a different fate : most of these have been destroyed with the dual purpose of removing the dramatic and embarrassing past together with the extraction of the precious metal used to build them. Some were decorated to defuse the coexistence , others became landfill while others are simply forgotten . However a part of these bunkers have been reconverted by the population for different purposes. They became bars, restaurants, shops, stables, a tattoo studio and even a church in honor of the fallen during the dictatorship. These bunkers alternate with those who persist in everyday life of the population, creating a shadow of the past that is inexorably slowly dissolving.
