The Wall of I love you

Local name: Le mur des je t'aime

The "I love you" wall is located in the Montmartre district, next to the Jehan Rictus square. On the wall of the building there is a mosaic covered with the phrase "I love you" written in 250 languages.

The decoration was made in 2000 by Fédéric Baron, a calligraphy artist, and the murals artist Claire Kito. In it, Baron wanted to show how divided the world was, and at the same time united by the desire for love. The beginning of his project was a question among friends from different countries, how does the phrase "I love you" sounds in their language.

612 dark tiles made of volcanic rock were laid on the wall of the building. It is covered with inscriptions made with white paint. Between them there are red elements that symbolize a falling heart. Collecting them together will form one heart.
