Catalogue Note

“Eh well, I am going to tell you. Nice, is an oasis on the edge of the sea, with forests of mimosas and palm trees and there are Russian and English princes who fight with flowers. There are clowns who dance in the streets and confetti falling from the sky which forget no one. One day, I will go to Nice, me too, when I will be young.”
Romain Gary, La Vie devant soi
