Catalogue de l'exposition Feu
Synonymous with warmth and friendliness, but also with violence and destruction, fire has an ambivalent place. It comforts and scares, protects and threatens, fertilizes and destroys. In fact, its mastery was of paramount importance to humanity.
In thirty-one key words, this book reveals fire in all its dimensions: historical, scientific, philosophical, cultural. You can read it in one go or taste it according to your desires, to discover why fire has fascinated since the dawn of time.
