Marcel Pagnol's Petit Monde is a heritage institution dear to the hearts of the people of Aubagne.
Here's the sort of miniature world with a unique provençal twist:
a display of 200-odd clay figurines acting out quirky scenes from Marcel Pagnol's life, books and movies.

It neatly combines two of the things for which Aubagne is famous: the local clay and Pagnol.

Sounds, images, lights, reconstructions... modernity serving tradition to rediscover this outstanding heritage.
