The enormous one ex Italian colony,once only vastness and deserts, is today a nation rich in oil, but still deprived of democracy, subjugated as it is from a dictator despot as Muammar Gheddafi, the only guide of the revolution from 1969 to today.
It is an poorly inhabited nation (few more than 5 million inhabitants on a territory 6 times greater than Italy), bad organized and dirty.
However how much the desert of the Akakus is beautiful! What a charm the endless sea of sandy barkane of the Sahara! How strange the upsetting Saharan city of Ghadames, with the tangle of its alleys and its covered passages, made to surrender from Gheddafi, that has given bleak residences type Soviet to the inhabitants of the desert!
And how beautiful the coastal band of the Tripolitania and the Cirenaica with the spectacular Roman and Greek archaeological sites directly on the sea as Sabratah, Leptis Magna and Apollonia or in panoramic position with sight Mediterranean as Cirene!
