    Fontaine-de-Vaucluse/Vaucluso la Font

    Frédéric Mistral, the great Provençal poet and responsible for a revival of the Provençal language at the turn of the XIXth century would be happy to see that now, many villages of Provence and especially his beloved Fontaine, now Fontaine-de-Vaucluse shows on the road signs both the French and the Provençal names.

    In France, until the late 50s, schools were separate for boys and girls. Often, in villages, the “École de filles” was in one wing of a small building, the “École de garcons” in the other wing and the town hall in the middle. In Fontaine-de-Vaucluse they were in two separate buildings and the name has been kept, carved on the front of each. I do not know how they are used now but what is sure is that there no anymore such a split!
