Countries which were colonized by the same inhabitants are still preserving ancient theatres even in most modern cities until today and they are considered as historic monuments. As an illustration, if you visit Tunis and Alger, where the french colonies settled years ago, you will discover countless things in common as buildings and architecture. Otherwise, this can also be a result of indirect influence. As the case in Tunisia, a huge number of Italians migrated to Tunisia in the 19th century and some of their descendants are still living there until today. Consequently, Tunisians unconsciously withdrew from their real roots and that lead to their current culture. The old Tunisian lifestyle has significantly altered and turned out to be a mixture of Arabic and Western cultures.
Spicy tomato Pasta and Pizza are almost considered as national dishes in Tunisia. In every neighbourhood, you find a local pizza bakery and in every tourist city, there is a fine Italian restaurant.
