Centre Georges Pompidou

Hello people!! Today's post is about the Centre Georges Pompidou, that I visited recently during a short escape to Paris! I'm a big fan of modern and contemporary art, so for me it was a real pleasure to visit this cultural centre. Probably many of you know that this museum was warmly wanted by  French President Georges Pompidou, who launched, in the late 60s, the idea of creating a new cultural institution in Paris dedicated to modern art. The building was designed, among the others, by the italian architect Renzo Piano ( proud of ;D). Anyway, this amazing cultural centre is not only a museum, it has also a library, a movie theatre, a book shop and a panoramic terrace; speaking about panoramic terrace, on the top floor of the Centre Pompidou you can find the Georges Cafè and restaurant, an enchanting place with one of the best views of Paris!
