PROVENCE

In the 15th century, Provence became part of France. This was a big deal because it wasn’t just about adding a piece of land. Provence brought its own flavor to the French culture. It’s like when you add a pinch of salt to your food, and suddenly, it tastes even better. Provence did that to France - it made it richer, in culture.

SAINTONGE

Long ago, people in Saintonge were known for making something pretty cool - salt. They were like chefs, but instead of cooking, they were experts in turning sea water into salt. This wasn't any ordinary salt, though. It was so good that people from far and wide came to get it. And there’s more! The people from Saintonge also made beautiful pots and dishes out of clay.

SAVOY

Savoy is a region of western Europe that emerged, along with the free communes of Switzerland, following the collapse of the Frankish Kingdom of Burgundy. Installed by Rudolph III, King of Burgundy, officially in 1003, the House of Savoy maintained independence as counts and then dukes until Savoia was linked with the Kingdom of Sardinia, which included Piemonte in north-western Italy. Savoy was largely absorbed into France in 1860, as part of the political agreement with Napoleon III that brought about the unification of Italy.
