The Provence and its Mediterranean roots by Christian Ramage
18 December, 2020
On 18 December, His Excellency Christian Ramage, French Ambassador to Brunei Darussalam, delivered a conference on the Mediterranean roots of the Provence.
This region in the south of France is synonymous with vacation, relaxation, blue skies and sunshine. But they also have ancient and deep Mediterranean roots, which have been highlighted through three elements, themselves taken from the famous card game of the film Marius, by Marcel Pagnol. These three elements, the tongue, the olive tree and the aniseed drink, illustrate the strong and ancient Mediterranean heritage of Provence.
