Place de la Republique on Monday 2 November 2015
Paris and its largest square Place de la Republique have recently been in focus due to terrorism and the COP21 Conference

Place de la Republique "has always had a special meaning for Parisians, as a place where citizens come to relax, enjoy, rest or play. Throughout history, citizens gathered there for public displays of both joy and grief, where they shared good and bad moments and where they voiced their opinions or fought for their ideas." (

In a blog article Alexandra Tisma reflects on Place de la Republique as a setting of formal and informal social life.
