Collection Julia Gonnella

Julia Gonnella, Director of the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha/Qatar, has contributed parts of her comprehensive photographic collection to the archive which focuses especially on the old city of Aleppo and other sites in Northern Syria.

This documentary has been produced especially in connection with her dissertation on the worship of Islamic saints in Aleppo and her research work on the Berlin Aleppo Room at the Museum of Islamic Art in Berlin. Between 1996 and 2011 she directed the Islamic section of the Syrian-German excavation on the Aleppo Citadel.

Julia Gonnella has published numerous books and articles on Islamic art and architecture.
