Maxime - Art & Culture

Bonjour, my name is Maxime. I obtained my name because my grandmother always took me to Maxime’s in Paris for my birthday, always in the company of her best girlfriend! When I was fourteen years old, I was already enamoured with their Parisian chatter. Now, when with friends, I know everything about the art of invisible make-up and light cocktails! The Parisian really has a very distinct character: she’s surprising and interesting. And she’s so feminine! As for invitations, it a real task: each day Paris offers new exhibitions, previews and vernissages. With a Parisian, you absolutely have to be in the right place at the right time!

THE BOUQUINISTES

You have certainly seen them, walking along the Seine in Paris. The row of small shops clinging to the stone parapet of the river is interrupted only when there is a bridge and therefore a passage. Then it resumes, as if nothing has happened, up to the next bridge.

Tutti gli anni, numerose esposizioni, talvolta di provenienza internazionale, vengono ospitate nei principali musei della capitale: qui di seguito una selezione degli eventi imperdibili della stagione 2018 e una panoramica della stagione 2019. Il successo dell’offerta culturale di Parigi è ormai un dato di fatto…

Parigi, lo sanno tutti, va girata a piedi. Non c'è niente di meglio che girovagare per la città, senza curarsi troppo di avere una meta precisa.

Every year, the two hendred trees of Avenue des Champs-Elysées in Paris become the framework for a unique set of illuminations running the whole 2½ kilometres from the Arc de Triomphe to Place de la Concorde, an ingenious lighting arrangement of scintillating festoons and tree-rings made of red, green, and blue. Learning the Champs Elysées song of Joe Dassin can bee an excellent way to learn French and celebrate one of the nicest avenue of the world! Just try this easy and pedagogique song before your next trip to Paris…

Provate a guardare una mappa generale di Parigi su cui sono segnati gli arrondissements, cioè i distretti amministrativi dei vari quartieri. Si parte dal 1er arrondissement, che è proprio il cuore della città, e girandogli intorno a spirale e in senso orario si completa tutta la chiocciola fino al 20ème, il ventesimo...

Have you ever seen how a real Parisian woman eats the most common of sea foods, mussels? Invite her to dinner at one of the many Léon de Bruxelles scattered around Paris. She will be tempted by the most classic dish on the menu, famous "Moules marinière", served in the traditional casserole with cast-iron lid. She will chat pleasantly with you, sip a glass of cool red wine, not a beer, and will have an indescribable expression of satisfaction when the moules arrive at the table. Now, watch her carefully…

The Champagne region in northeastern France is renowned for its sparkling wines, produced according to many strict rules. Champaign is generally made from a blend of various wines (different vineyards, harvest years, grape varieties). Finding the right blend is an art, for this is what determines the taste of the champagne, and each champagne producer makes different choices…

Se sei un meneghino doc, la cotoletta alla milanese è un must da cui non puoi prescindere. È l'equivalente del foie gras poelé o del Boeuf à la Bourguignonne per un parigino nato e cresciuto a Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Il mio amico Paolo, 42 anni, dirigente d'azienda trasferito a Parigi da Milano è felice come una Pasqua, ma…
