Veillée d'octobre " Petite anthologie du mistral "
Châteaurenard - Divers arts - Tuesday 26 January. Date to be confirmed. - Free
Veillée animée par par M. Bernard Mondon
Le mistral d'après un dicton et avec le parlement et la Durance est le 3ème fléau de la Provence. On le surnomme le " manjo-fango " (mangeur de boue). On peut distinguer le mistral blanc, froid du Nord, qui chasse les nuages et la pluie, le mistral noir, qui peut amener nuages et pluie et le mistral thermique d'été. On dit qu'il souffle 3 - 6 ou 9 jours, mythe ou réalité ? La Provence lui doit sa lumière et son ciel bleu.
M. Bernard Mondon nous présentera son livre.
