To mark the “1515-2015 – Francis I, the Renaissance in the Loire Valley” cultural season, Doulce Mémoire, an ensemble specialising in ancient music that has been active in Tours for over 25 years, has just brought out a book/CD providing a real feast of music composed for a king – Francis I, the patron prince who well understood how much music could serve his policy of prestige.
The programme “Vues-sur-Loire” offers viewers a once-in-a-lifetime visit to the cathedral, from its basements to the tops of its towers. It’s also a journey through French history, as the first Sainte-Croix church dates back to the 4th century. Following successive building campaigns often hindered by the ups-and-downs of history, the present Gothic cathedral was finally completed in 1858.
Companies, local authorities, associations and, for the first time, social and solidarity economy bodies located in the Regional Nature Park’s territory are invited to take part in the contest.
Initiated in 2014, the Résidence Ackerman + Fontevraud La Scène is mounting its first exhibition, set to open on 3 April in the Maison Ackerman cellars. Created by the artist Julien Salaud, the work “Fleuve Céleste” (Celestial River) takes over its setting, endowing it with a fragile and ephemeral stellar vault that is to be on exhibition for the next three years.
Tourism is one of the mainstays of our local economy – a key source of employment and of major importance to our national and international reputation. The aim is to reap our fair share of the rewards in the offing due to the growing numbers of tourists worldwide (overall figures are forecast to double by 2030) by implementing a concerted strategy. This is why the Indre-et-Loire General Council entrusted Touraine’s Départemental Tourism Agency with the task of drafting a competitiveness plan for the Touraine-Loire Valley destination, which was voted on by the Départemental Assembly on 13 February 2015.
In February 2014, the statue of Saint Martin had to be taken down in all haste as it threatened to topple from its perch at any moment, its base on the basilica’s dome showing serious signs of wear at the hands of time. A health report on the edifice stressed the need for major restoration work to be undertaken if the building was to be saved, at an estimated cost of 1.7 million euros. The City of Tours has joined forces with the Heritage Foundation to launch an international public subscription fund for collection of the sums required for the project.
