The first, ” Gares du Maroc” pays tribute to “the modernity and creativity that are the pride of the country,” says the publisher, in a statement, which also emphasizes that ” by their aestheticism and functionality, the stations announce the ambitions of the railway sector and the great challenges of tomorrow. This book, written by the historian and journalist Marie-Pascale Rauzier, is available in Arabic, French and English, and depicts both the anchoring of stations in Moroccan tradition and their evolution.
The second book ” Rêves de gare” is a kind of worldwide odyssey that presents the 54 most beautiful or emblematic stations scattered around the globe. An unpublished work conceived in collaboration with the International Union of Railways (UIC) and all the railway companies of the world, which also pays tribute to the stations through the cinema, testifying to their universal dimension. Throughout the pages, each station, chosen within a city, a country or a continent, drives the reader in a moment of beauty and humanity. In two words, a beautiful trip!
