SMALL HISTORY ON MONTPARNASSE
The nickname of Montparnasse comes from the “Mount Parnassus” given to the student district who used to come here to recite poems.
In the 18th century, boulevard Montparnasse was abandoned and during the revolution many dance halls and cabarets opened their doors.
Montparnasse became very popular at the beginning of the 20th century becoming the center of the intellectual and artistic life of Paris. From all over the world, the crowds came to live the bohemian life. The place was also the refuge of politicians in exile, such as Lenin and Trotsky.
The great activity of the inhabitants of the neighborhood was concentrated in endless discussions, in the neighboring cafes such as the Rotonde, the Select, the Dome, the Closerie des Lilas or the Coupole. In these places, great men such as Zadkine, Paul Fort, Apollinaire, Max Jacob, Hemingway, Fargue, Breton, Cocteau, Fitzgerald, Henry Miller, Miro, Foujita … have left their eternal imprints in memories.
