Lasserre collects pans… and hands out some too!
In 1948, the "Casserole" Club was created and huge thematic parties were regularly thrown. The success of those galas allowed René Lasserre to inovate and undertake major works. The Club was a great vector for events and the membership designation was a silver pan-shaped keychain.
Legend affirms that famous painter Marc Chagall decided to create the ceiling of the great Opera Garnier during a lunch there with André Malraux.
