During this exceptional period of containment, everyone is invited to stay home to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
The Ministry of Culture launches the operation #Culturecheznous, the opportunity to discover the exceptional digital cultural offer proposed by the national cultural institutions and in particular the resources of the national Museums of 20th Century of the Alpes-Maritimes.
Dears of Fernand Léger's artworks, throughout the confinement, we have tried to help you escape and enliven your days in a playful and enjoyable way. We participated with joy in the operation #Culturecheznous via our social networks.
A big thank you to France 3 Provence and Olivier Orsini for their spotlight on our digital actions in their regional TV news:
