The fire that ravaged Notre Dame in April illustrates how the duty of preservation of majestic medieval buildings that sustained war and erosion should be a priority to guarantee that such wonderful patrimony be admired by the next generations.

We will be screening Chartres: Light Reborn!, a documentary by Anne Savalli (52 minutes - 2016) about renovation of the Chartres Cathedral, an icon of French Gothic architecture, followed by a talk with Claire Babet, maître-verrier, in charge of renovating all the stained-glass windows of the Chartres Cathedral.
