Heritage - "House of the illustrious, a label of the Ministry of Culture to recognize and make known the places of the women and men who made our history"
Emmanuelle Lallement, Head of the Public Policy Department
Marco Marchetti, Deputy Head of the Department of Public Policy
In 2011, the Ministry of Culture and Communication created a new label: "Maisons des Illustres". Today, 212 houses are labeled.
Some are museum-houses allowing to enter the intimacy of these illustrious personages through objects and furniture preserved in their original frame. Others are archive-houses that present and value various documents and testimonies. Still others, houses-creations where carte blanche was given to an artist for an aesthetic evocation. Others, in short, perpetuate the spirit of their host by the reception in residence of writers, painters or actors. From the estate to the studio, from the castle to the apartment, from the house to the workshop, these authentic places invite the reader to explore an unprecedented heritage.
