NOTRE DAME DE PARIS TALK – 27 NOVEMBER
THE LEGEND AND THE HISTORY
The fire on April 15th, 2019 at the Notre-Dame de Paris was watched by the entire world, sparking an unprecedented wave of emotions. The Parisian cathedral, deeply rooted in the French capital landscape for eight centuries, has become a fully-fledged character in the history of France: its building, restoration and the events that took place there, either real or imaginary, have captured the world’s imagination. Seven months after the disaster, we can look back on the real and legendary fate of one of the most remarkable and iconic monuments the Middle Ages gave us.
