France approves controversial Notre-Dame renovation plans

A controversial redesign of the interior of Notre-Dame cathedral has been approved by heritage authorities, including possible street art installations and softer mood lighting for the Parisian landmark.






A controversial redesign of the interior of Notre-Dame cathedral has been approved by heritage authorities, including possible street art installations and softer mood lighting for the Parisian landmark.

Church authorities, says France 24 are adamant the plans - part of a wider rebuilding project following the devastating fire in 2019 - are not revolutionary and will simply “offer visitors a warmer welcome”.

But the changes have sparked criticism, with around 100 public figures putting their names to an opinion piece in the right-wing newspaper Le Figaro last week, saying they "entirely undermine the decor and religious space" of the historic site.
