Who’d have believed it? The story of the famous farm with the Airplanes at Steenwerck*, in a state of disrepair due to neglect, has reached the ears of the representatives of the Nation, as reported by La Voix du Nord (in French). It was none other than Jean-Pierre Allossery, local councillor, who questioned Aurélie Filipetti, Cultural Minister, on the subject. “This original artistic form deserves as much attention as other more traditional forms of art. Our heritage is not limited to cathedrals and châteaux”, she replied. Before adding: “A bill covering our national heritage which I will present soon should better allow us to protect these original artistic forms.”
* The farm with the Airplanes can be seen from the A25 on your left just before Lille (32.3 km by motorway from Lille). This picture may ring a bell although the angle is not right.
