The Art of living in the Ajaccio region, from 3 to 17 July
The Ajaccio region has a first-rate historical and cultural heritage. In this environment of quality and excellence, man's imprint is present everywhere.
It is an integral part of the soul of this micro-region of Corsica. Indeed, man determines the outline and the grandeur of the region thanks to his quality know-how, his commitments of all kinds and his numerous references to tradition.
In fact, he is the determining actor who traces the path to be taken. The purpose of this synthetic photo exhibition is to facilitate the discovery of this identity.
An object for history, from 31 July to 29 August
On the occasion of the anniversary of Napoleon's death, the Comité Central Bonapartiste, in partnership with the town of Ajaccio and the Tourist Office of the Ajaccio region, is organising a cooperative exhibition.
The objective is to show the attachment of each person to the Emperor across generations. Who among us has not kept a trace of this era, and therefore a small piece of history, of our history? Newspapers, old maps, statuettes, medals ........ the list is not exhaustive.
Due to the progression of the indicators of the worsening of the health crisis on the island, and in continuity with the decision taken by the City of Ajaccio concerning the cancellation of the festivities of the 15th of August, the OIT du Pays d' Ajaccio is forced to postpone the exhibition Un objet pour l'histoire.
We thank you for your understanding.
