TYPE OF HOUSE
Few neighborhoods of Paris have a rich and Saint Germain des Prés past, where history and creation have made an appointment. This mixture belongs to the genius of France. A little history ... Saint-Germain-des-Prés district has always been a special charm to the mystery which never ceases to amaze and inspire many authors. all started when 'in 542, the army of Childebert, son of Clovis, the Visigoths laid siege to Zaragoza. It was during this period that we can situate the birth of the Saint-Germain-des-Prés, which develops around the abbey built by Childebert on the advice of the bishop Germain to house the treasures and including the tunic of St. Vincent, obtained the surrender of the barbarians. The church is surrounded by a monastery, is fast emerging as the richest of France and was renamed Saint-Germain-des-Prés in the death of the bishop Germain. The suburb grows gradually to become from the seventeenth the home of the literary and dramatic world. Already the artists are in the habit of meeting in the many cafes which bloom in the neighborhood, such as Procope which opens its doors in 1689 in the Saint-Germain fair. Thus Saint-Germain-des-Prés is as a place of strange cohabitation between clergy and artists, thereby derogating from the proprieties of the time. But the Revolution of 1789 marked the end of the existence of the powerful Benedictine abbey which is successively destroyed by an explosion followed by fire . Yet the destruction of the abbey does not sign the death warrant of the district in which the artistic and intellectual life flourished in the nineteenth century. It appears, at that time, that intellectuals harbor a special attachment to this place. Thus many artists settle, whether painters like Delacroix, Ingres and Manet, writers such as Racine, Balzac and Georges Sand, but also players like Mounet Sully. The area (email hidden) where artists and intellectuals like to meet for large lively discussions both in the news and on the culture. During the twentieth century, the Saint-Germain-des-Prés is synonymous literary and artistic life and cafes create their own circle or even their literary prize. The Deux Magots café founded the price of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the first winner is Raymond Queneau for The Bermuda grass. The importance of coffee increases and Leon Paul beading in the pedestrian area of Paris, and describes the three cafes of Saint-Germain (Le Flore, Les Deux Magots and Brasserie Lipp) "true also famous institutions as State institutions "... During the Second World War and while restrictions and curfews are the order of the day, the cafes of Saint-Germain-des-Prés are the last places to meet and exchange the busy capital. Every day Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir arrive at dawn in one of the three cafes in order to install the best seats near the stove. Upon release, the theater avant-garde took off. Théâtre de Babylone and are presented Waiting for (website hidden) Samuel Beckett in 1953 but Amédée or how to get rid of Ionesco. In 1956, the typewriter Cocteau was played at the Odeon Theatre, and in 1960, the Rhino Theatre Recamier. However, the worlds of stage and writing are not the only ones attracted by Saint-Germain . des Pres Thus painters and photographers are likely to settle in the area: in 1937, Picasso's Guernica finishes in his workshop rue des Grands Augustins where his friend Man Ray makes him regularly. 's world the song is no slouch either: Léo Ferré occurs at the Fountain of the Four Seasons and many authors songwriters operating in the area. Georges Brassens, Jacques Brel, Charles Trenet, Guy Béart, Charles Aznavour and Serge Gainsbourg are regulars at Saint-Germain-des-Prés when they do not live there. This little world likes to be the day in the great cafes the night in the basement as the Green Bar or Tabou who did so much scandal at the time. In these cellars music, nightlife artists listen to the New Orleans Jazz and Be Bop that are introduced at the Club Saint-Germain at the Blue Note by Sidney Bechet, Miles Davis and Duke Ellington. Juliette Greco and Anne-Marie Cazalis are the queens of the night and launch the existentialist movement. Indeed, the youth of Saint-Germain, expressing existentialist, away from his sense philosophy of Jean-Paul Sartre. This erroneous interpretation of Sartre's philosophy greatly miss his author regrets that it is presented as a phenomenon of outrageous fashion. history of the district of Saint-Germain-des-Prés is an illustration of the special relationship between the area and cultural and artistic life of our country and its capital. Therefore it seems essential to safeguard our cultural heritage to preserve the spirit of this magical place ...
