PARIS without its Tour Eiffel. Impossible even to imagine, today. But if some French intellectuals would have won their battle, the Iron Lady (Dame de Fer) might have survived for maybe just twenty years or maybe less. The French originally hated it. If not all, certainly an important group of high-profile artists, thinkers and creatives who signed a petition to protest against the tower during its construction. They expressed all their hate towards this “useless” and “monstrous” monument with a love letter to their City of Lights (Ville Lumière) and finesse, published on Valentine’s Day 1887.
PARIS This explains our recent trip to the Ville Lumière… and soon all info about the wonderful news that we bring you here! #MNRlight2015
PARIS Nascosta fra le case, riconoscibile solo dalla vecchia insegna colorata e dai banchi di libri accatastati all’ingresso, la libreria Shakespeare and Company passa quasi inosservata. Ma come spesso accade nella Ville Lumière, gli angoli meno appariscenti sono quelli più ricchi di sorprese.
