France Brésil 01

France Brazil, a love story
The French heritage in Brazil
This exhibition was inaugurated in Paris in September 2020. It is scheduled to visit other French cities in the near future.

At the beginning of the 19th century and at the beginning of the 20th century, a group of French architects and artists arrived in Brazil to embellish the city of Rio following the urban model of Paris. Wide avenues have been created, a new afforestation has arisen, landscaped flowerbeds, and dozens of exquisite sculptures,  and fountains signed by these artists.
