As long as Manosque shines…
…Giono will never fade
Giono spent his entire life in Manosque. It was here that the author created his monumental oeuvre, inspired by the sun-drenched footpaths and unbridled natural scenery that was his home. Following in the footsteps of the « immobile traveller », as Giono liked to call himself, you will cross the landscapes he described so vividly, from Gréoux-les-Bains to Forcalquier where his work A King Alone was born. A wave of emotion submerges walkers arriving at Giono’s home, a pretty house with green shutters. Today, you can still admire his personal library overflowing with manuscripts, letters and private papers, now lovingly guarded by the association Les Amis de Jean Giono, based inside the house. Every summer since 2006, « Les Rencontres Giono » brings Giono’s work back to life with a series of interpretations by contemporary artists.
