Fire in Notre-Dame de Paris: the Pinault family unblocks 100 million euros.
The Pinault family will unblock one hundred million euros through its investment company Artemis, after the terrible fire that ravaged the Notre-Dame Cathedral, said Francois-Henri Pinault tonight.
“This tragedy strikes all the French and beyond all those who are attached to spiritual values. Faced with such a tragedy, everyone wants to revive this jewel of our heritage as quickly as possible, “writes the president of the family holding company and the luxury group Kering.
“My father (François Pinault, editor’s note) and I have decided to unblock from the funds of Artemis a sum of 100 million euros to participate in the effort that will be necessary for the complete reconstruction of Notre-Dame. He wrote in a statement. Artemis is the armed arm of the empire founded by François Pinault, now 82 years old and third fortune of France. The company, founded in 1992, is managed by François-Henri Pinault since 2003.
Earlier in the evening, President Emmanuel Macron said a “national subscription” will be launched to rebuild the cathedral. The Heritage Foundation also announced Tuesday to launch a “national collection” for the reconstruction of Notre Dame, it said in a statement to AFP (Agence France Presse).
