Thousands of citizens have visited the Pyramid, which is now also the center of innovation and the largest shelter for young people passionate about digital technology in the region. On the first day of its opening, many people visited the transformed spaces of the Pyramid, climbing stairs that make it much easier to reach the top than it used to be.

"Today we are opening the largest digital center for young people in the Balkans for the youth of Albania!" said the mayor of Tirana, Erion Veliaj, on this occasion. In his speech, Prime Minister Rama said, "The Pyramid of Rebirth will become the heart of New Innovation in Albania and the largest shelter for young people passionate about digital technology in the region."

"There was a time when the previous government tried to demolish it to make a new parliament, and there was another interesting moment when the Pyramid was protected by young people, a large number of girls and boys who were not encouraged by political parties. Then there was an absurd attempt to make it a National Theater, and once again a big failure of the previous government. Almost 5 million euros were spent, and the Pyramid was looted and left with what it had. Its marble tiles were taken and it remained a skeleton that would supposedly be the stage of the theater. The other challenge is populating it with start-ups, with the digital world," said Rama.

The Pyramid will not only be a space for information technology but also a tourist station in Tirana, for those who want to learn history or see the landscape. The Pyramid will also function for training, have libraries, halls where people can gather, halls where they can exhibit their works, and TUMO center, a new type of educational experience at the intersection of technology and design. The educational institution TUMO Tirana will run the Pyramid after its renovation. It will offer pre-school education programs for 12-18-year-olds, such as robotics, animation, game development, music, and film.

The Pyramid of Tirana was built as a museum in 1988, in memory of the former communist leader Enver Hoxha. In 1991, after the fall of communism, it served as a conference center. During the Kosovo War in 1999, the building was used as a NATO base. Later it served as a cultural center and was named after the former political prisoner Pjetër Arbnori, the former head of the Albanian pluralist parliament after the fall of the communist regime.
