Virginie Varenne, directrice de la Maison des Canuts Interview "...Maison des Canuts..." Virginie e Philibert Varenne, direttori della Maison des Canuts Maison des Canuts

Andiamo alla Croix-Rousse, la collina che lavora, antico quartiere di tessitura della seta.

Virginie Varenne dirige con il marito Philibert la Maison des Canuts (operai tessitori), che è stato interamente rinnovato da loro... Ci si arriva attraverso la boutique, uno spazio chiaro dall'architettura caratteristica del quartiere con gli alti soffitti di legno. I muri bianchi fanno spiccare i colori cangianti delle sete.

Con le sue inesauribili conoscenze sulla seteria lionese, Virginie Varenne mette tutta la sua energia per condividere la sua passione con i visitatori e per demolire i preconcetti!
