Employees committed to preserving local heritage!


Through the campaign entitled “The Largest Museum of France”, started in 2017 in partnership with La Sauvegarde de l’Art Français and the Michelin Corporate Foundation, Michelin Group employees have had the opportunity to get directly involved in the preservation of the cultural heritage of our regions.

Last January, the employees of 13 French sites of the Michelin group embarked on a great treasure hunt in search of works of art to restore in their departments.

In total, more than 500 employees mobilized for this major operation, and no less than 92 works of art were spotted in the various territories. The employees of each site then voted to choose one work per site to be restored.

The 13 winning works will each receive funding of €8,000 from the Michelin Corporate Foundation for their restoration.

This original project has a positive impact on residents, associations and local elected officials. Since its launch in 2017, 47 works of art have already been restored thanks to this campaign.

For this 2023 edition: Sculptures, paintings, musical instruments, carpentry and woodwork make up all the selected treasures – see map below:
