The Amazigh version



"TUGNA is the word in Kabyle language that is used to symbolize the word ALLEGORIA from Latin which means allegory. But in the Kabyle language, tugna symbolizes the word allegory so we could say that it's an allegory within an allegory.
Proud to be able to present this version of ALLEGORIA in Kabyle language which is part of the Amazigh (Berber) language and culture present in North Africa since 3000 years before Christ.
North Africa has been the scene over thousands of years of various colonizing times. Romans, Greeks, Arabs, French, all passed and left their traces there, but the Kabyle language survives thru the spoken word. As an homage to the native language of the writer who wrote the text for the narration in the English version of ALLEGORIA, it could only be the natural thing to do to make this version in Noufel's own language, which is one of the oldest languages in the world that is still alive.
A language that survived through the spoken word and was transmitted from generations for thousands of years. A language still threatened today by ongoing conflicts mainly in Kabylie and other parts of North Africa, like Rrif, Atlas in Morocco, Zwara, Nefousa in Libya, Tunisia and even in Egypt.
This will be our way to support the work and efforts of Noufel, the artist, the writer and poet, to keep this language and culture alive thru his numerous writings and poems." Nobilis Bellator, film director.
