Mr Khalid Masood will accompany the heart veins red marble Caunes. We show and explain the start, life, purpose, and the rehabilitation of a career..

He will tell you about his plan to return a block of marbleto Versailles

The return of an order not honored.
According to the archives a command of several columns
was neverdelivered.   
It would be a question of rebuilding the conditions 
of deliveries asin the XVII century.   
The block would leave Minervois, join the ports of the 
 Canal du Midi which would organize events

and arrive inVersailles after a boat crossing.  
In Versailles the block would be delivered inthe gardens.
