In place since October 30, the exhibition of the painter artist Gregory Berben ends this weekend, the opportunity to do this "drop out" of the exhibition ...

Many local officials had come, including Thomas de Pariente, Deputy for Culture of the City of Cannes, and David Lisnard, Mayor of Cannes, who took the opportunity to make speeches about the artist and the Association "Smile & Share" which Gregory Berben founds himself as one of its founding members.

Among those present last night sports, we noticed Eric Bauthéac (OGC Nice), volleyball players of AS Cannes Pierre Pujol, Ludovic Castard & Pascal Ragondet, champion motorcycle Ornella Ongaro, Jean Louis Schlesser, but also former footballers & David Casteu, brand new 7th on the Dakar bike and 1 French ...
