The State of Eritrea is a country in northeastern Africa. Bounded on the north and west by Sudan, on the south by Ethiopia and Djibouti, the east has an extensive coastline with the Red Sea. Its name comes from the Greek eritros, meaning "red." Independent since 1993, making it one of the youngest states in the world. Its capital and largest city is Asmara. Throughout history and until 1890, when Italy colonized the territory and defines the area of Eritrea had been part of various empires and kingdoms of the region. The Kingdom of Italy established the colony of Eritrea in 1890 and continued until the Second World War, with the same boundaries that currently has the State of Eritrea. In order to install its own population into the territory, the Italians brought great development to the Italian Eritrea, from agriculture to basic industries through infrastructure. The capital Asmara was the scene of an architectural development (mainly in Art Deco) that still today is admired worldwide. By 1940 there were about one hundred thousand Italian settlers in Eritrea, which had repercussions on the architecture of some of their cities and religion of its inhabitants.
