    A journalist and writer of international renown, Albert Londres is regarded as the father of "grand reportage". At the beginning of the 20th century, he inaugurated this new style of journalism based on observation and travel. Throughout his career, right up to his death in 1932, he traveled the globe to report on the world and, as he put it, "take the pen to the wound". Created in his memory, the Albert Londres prize is awarded each year to the best French-speaking reporters.

    The Maison Albert Londres association acquired the monument in 2014, and three years later, restoration work began. Year after year, Albert Londres's birthplace is gradually coming back to life. The association's ambition is to turn it into a house of great reporting (hosting journalists in residence, media education, promotion of Albert Londres's work, thematic exhibitions, etc.).
