Virginie Varenne, directrice de la Maison des Canuts Interview "...丝绸工人之家..." 维吉尼(Virginie)和费立波.瓦海呐(Philibert Varenne) 丝绸工人之家

让我们一起去橙十字山区吧,这个以“工作”著名的山丘,同时也是过去的丝绸工业区。

维吉尼.瓦海呐(Virginie Varenne)和她的丈夫费立波.瓦海呐(Philibert Varenne)是里昂丝绸工人之家的负责人,夫妻二人一同修复了这个历史古迹。我们可以从丝绸店进入,这里的建筑还保留着旧时的风格——高高的木质吊顶和亮堂的房间。白色的墙壁衬托出丝绸明亮的色彩。

维吉尼.瓦海呐(Virginie Varenne)投入了巨大精力,力图将这个为里昂历史做出巨大贡献的丝绸工厂保存下来,让更多的人可以来这里参观并了解这段光荣的历史。
