Paris 2017: Cimetière du Montparnasse: #17: Serge Reggiani

Serge Reggiani (1922–2004) first made his name as an actor, and it wasn't until he was forty-two that he turned to singing. Nevertheless, he is now considered as one of France's greatest singers. In the 1990s he published two autobiographical works. Having missed this grave and strayed into the eight division, a cemetery workers' van pulled up alongside of us and asked if we were looking for Reggiani. Yes. 'Over there, where the people are.' Yep, just as it's marked on the map.
