Le Provençal de Paris

Page two - Aioli and Côte-d'Azur, a dish sung since the 11th century and the announcement of the annual country festival in Crécy-en-Brie to honor this dish with the program of festivities, the culinary competition (with garlic and Var oil), the presentation of the honorary mortar, a donkey competition to win a sausage and there will be no flies for sure! “Don’t worry, fara bêu!”

Crécy-en-Brie, which in 1972 became Crécy-la-Chapelle in Seine-et-Marne. But no trace of this picturesque festival, which is just waiting to be relaunched, Bignole would love it, especially since the Cresois festival committee was created on April 1, 2023, and it is not a fish of 'april

And on the same page - A reassuring brief from Aix. Messrs. T. Masamune from Tokyo and Simura and R. Ono, visiting Japanese artists and art lovers, indicate that Paul Cézanne's works in Japanese collections did not suffer from the earthquake

And still in the Var, but in Saint Raphaël, a petition from the inhabitants of Valescure is circulating. The South is doing less well than the North. We are concerned about the total absence of means to fight fires. Should we wait for a tragedy? Do not look for information on fires in Saint-Raphaël in the search bar of your favorite search engine, these are not-so-dramatic facts.

Always varied news in Saint-Raph, the controversy over black panties which displeases the municipality, the wild boars who are politely invited to return to their forest and the installation of a public water closet.

The Valescure district and its history since 1881, we understand the petition better when we see the villas and the names of the residents of this place. Enjoy your stroll in the “golf district”

Still page three - Levens in the Alpes-Maritimes, the result of the tender for the Hautes-Sarres water supply, Mr. Jean Barriera is the lucky one and after work, Levens, a summer resort with increasing development, will see every year increase the number of its summer visitors. A century later, what is the news from Levens.An appeal will be filed against the permit to build a photovoltaic park in Levens...Five hectares of solar panels is the equivalent of five hectares of concrete. As soon as it rains, it will fall vertically on Baus Roux. Finally, why go and disturb nature when we can very well install solar panels elsewhere than in a natural area?"...This project is located in the heart of nature, at the top of Mount Arpasse. It should cost a total of around of 12 million euros, (francebleu) And we also talk about water resources: Megabasins: the mayor of Levens' project triggers the wrath of environmentalists It's true, I mentioned the desire to increase the volume of water reservoirs for the production of artificial snow . Still the tourism problem. (france3). Nothing really new, a hundred years ago we were already talking about photovoltaics and renewable energy. Perhaps we talked a little less about tourism.

There is an envelope in the archives of the Bouches-du-Rhône prefecture dating from 1692. And we learn the art of folding a missive, in order to make it inviolable.

And a century later, three words in texting language, possibly accompanied by a smiley, transmitted by airwaves. Progress !

Not enough sales,” explains Marie-Christine. (
