“Beirut is a city that lives on present, and it’s in the present that it seems to project itself. It’s probably a short-term but, at the same time, very solid projection. The pursuit of immediate fullness is evident everywhere, in the uninterrupted urban growth, in the economic and cultural boosts and, of course, in the youth-life, constantly in search for emancipation, amusement, fulfillment. There is no doubt that the city (probably the most open-minded city of the Middle East) offers the possibility to satisfy all that.” - Roberto Boccaccino about On the Side
