The Conseil General des Alpes-Maritimes celebrates the contemporary architecture through a free tour of exceptional sites throughout the summer.

Next to the publication of the book “Architecture contemporaine sur la Côte d’Azur” (co-published by the Conseil General des Alpes-Maritimes – Presses du Réel), you can discover the remarkable architectural achievements since the 50’s on the Côte d’Azur. Included in this tour are the Donation Albers-Honegger (Espace de l’Art Concret at Mouans Sartoux), the gymnasium of “La Chenaie” and the mediacenter of Mouans-Sartoux.

Of the 59 buildings published in “Architecture contemporaine sur la Côte d’Azur”, 24 places are exceptionally open for free. This is an invitation to a journey in the contemporary territory of Alpes-Maritimes.

Feedback on the flawless organization of the seminar in Istanbul, for a famous group of large retailers

Monday 13th to Friday 17th June 2011, I’ve been pleased to arrange a great seminar in Istanbul for a leading European supermarkets, with the complicity and efficaciency of our Turkish correspondent: ODS I’ve known for over 30 years!

A stay at the magnificent Ciragan Palace Kempinski, ideally located on the Bosphorus, a program of high quality including the private visit of the famous Topkapi museum, the Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern where we could see a show of whirling dervishes. A visit to the great Blue Mosque where we were greeted by the Imam. A private tour of the Orthodox Church Chora and the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople, a wonderful cruise on the Bosphorus. Various gourmet lunches and dinners served all along this beautiful journey that, in the opinion of all participants, was of a very high quality.

And a special thanks I adress to ODS, our Turkish correspondant!

An unforgettable evening for Andantino!

Wednesday 8th June 8 was held at the Basilique Notre dame du Bon Voyage in Cannes an unforgettable concert performed by employees of member companies Andantino.

More than 450 people had attend at the preamble to the Concerto for Organ and Orchestra by Francis Poulenc and the Mozart Requiem performed by the Orchestre Regional de Cannes and the chorus of companies Andantino led by Jean-Pierre Gregoire and of course under the direction of Philippe Bender.

A masterful performance as regards the choruses are mostly amateurs who, through hard work, have largely matched a professional interpretation.

An evening to mark in the annals of our association which has welcomed 4 new members since the beginning of the year!
