Émile Biasini

Great Construction Projects From Africa to the Louvre Publication date : February 1, 1995

To work with André Malreaux, an intellectual fascinated by politics, and François Mitterand, a political man fascinated by intellectuals: such was the incredible luck of Emile Biasini. Having served colonial France in Africa, Biasini was a force in the creation of the Ministry of Culture under Charles de Gaulle. He then was a television director in the heyday of the French broadcasting service and a key player in the development of the Acquitaine region, as well as in the construction of the Grand Louvre, and later served as the secrétaire d'Etat aux Grands Travaux. He tells the story of a life of intersecting cultures, a life in the service of culture.
