ERASMUS+ "Reporters without frontiers" in Paris (3rd day)

Today all the groups in this ERASMUS+ transnational meeting have visited Rodin Museum, which is near the school. 

It is a museum that was opened in 1919, dedicated to the works of the French sculptor Auguste Rodin. It has two sites: the Hôtel Biron and surrounding grounds in central Paris and just outside Paris at Rodin's old home, the Villa des Brillants at Meudon (Hauts-de-Seine). The collection includes 6,600 sculptures, 8,000 drawings, 8,000 old photographs, and 7,000 objets d’art. The museum receives 700,000 visitors annually.

While living in the Villa des Brillants, Rodin used the Hôtel Biron as his workshop from 1908 and subsequently donated his entire collection of sculptures (along with paintings by Vincent van GoghClaude Monet, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir that he had acquired) to the French State on the condition that they turn the buildings into a museum dedicated to his works.
The Musée Rodin contains most of Rodin's significant creations, including The ThinkerThe Kiss, and The Gates of Hell. Many of his sculptures are displayed in the museum's extensive garden. The museum includes a room dedicated to the works of Camille Claudel.

After this visit, groups 1 and 3 were taken to "Les grands voisins"It is situated in the former Saint-Vincent de Paul Hospital and it is a place that offers accomodation to immigrants and people in need.
Moreover, the hospital complex was transformed last September into a utopian village mixing emergency accommodation and solidarity, artistic, entrepreneurial and associative projects. 
After the visit, students have free time to meet their families and/or go shopping.
