CAFÉ CUL­TURE

Living France - - What's New -

A cam­paign to add Paris’ bistros and café ter­races to UNESCO’s in­tan­gi­ble cul­tural her­itage list has been launched in France. The new lobby group has high­lighted the cafés’ role in the com­mu­nity as a place for peo­ple and cul­tures to come to­gether. UNESCO sta­tus would of­fer the sites le­gal pro­tec­tion, help with con­ser­va­tion, and would of­fi­cially recog­nise their cul­tural value. This lat­est ap­pli­ca­tion fol­lows the re­cent unan­i­mous vote to ap­ply for the same sta­tus for the iconic bouquin­istes (book­sell­ers) that line the River Seine.
