Meanwhile, in a posh neighborhood of Paris’s 8th arrondissement, chefs and activists working to fight hunger among the homeless, lonely, and insecure continue a quiet project they’ve been on for the past 18 months.
Refettorio Paris, an epicurean – and secular – restaurant that provides meals for Paris’s less fortunate, is located in the crypt of La Madeleine church, not far from the opulent Place Vendome, and surrounded by trendy shops such as Fauchon, Dior, and Chanel.
Massimo Bottura, the three-star Michelin chef of Osteria Francescana in Modena, Italy, started the initiative. Bottura has attempted to raise awareness of food waste and encourage healthy community kitchens globally while also engaging their support services – from food suppliers to chefs to artists to designers – through Food for Soul, an organization based in Modena and founded with his partner, Lara Gilmore.
These restaurants, in Bottura’s opinion, go beyond ordinary soup kitchens. Food for Soul believes in the value of social interaction and the basic yet revolutionary concept of “equal right to beauty for all.”

The Empire style, which many consider to be the second phase of Neoclassicism, was a design movement in architecture, furniture, and the decorative arts that lasted until around 1830 in the early nineteenth century. The style was created during Napoleon I’s reign as Emperor of the First French Empire, and it was meant to idealize Napoleon’s French state.
The Directoire style of the preceding era, which aimed for a simpler but still elegant evocation of the virtues of the Ancient Roman Republic, was created and elaborated by the Empire style. The Roman Empire and its many archaeological treasures were rediscovered in the 18th century, and Empire style architecture was based on them. The style was thought to have “liberated” and “enlightened” architecture in the same way that Napoleon’s Napoleonic Code “liberated” the people of Europe. Symbols and ornaments from the ancient Greek and Roman empires were extensively used as inspiration for architectural designs. Simple timber frames and box-like constructions were typical, with expensive mahogany veneer imported from the newly acquired colonies.

Since the law at the time prohibited burial of Louis XVI’s remains alongside those of his father, the Dauphin Louis de France, at Sens, his body was immediately transported to the old Church of the Madeleine (demolished in 1799). A brief memorial service was held at the church by two curates who had pledged fealty to the Revolution. Damoureau, one of them, testified in court: “When I arrived at the cemetery, I requested silence.” The body was shown to us by a detachment of Gendarmes. It was dressed in a white vest, grey silk breeches, and stockings that matched. We sang Vespers and the funeral service. The body in its open coffin was thrown on a bed of quicklime at the bottom of the pit and coated with another of dirt, all of which was firmly and completely tamped down in accordance with an executive order. The head of Louis XVI was set at his feet.
Following Napoleon’s defeat and the Restoration’s Catholic reaction, King Louis XVIII agreed to turn the building into a church dedicated to Mary Magdalene. Vignon died in 1828 before the project was completed, and Jacques-Marie Huvé took his place. In 1828-29, a new competition was held to select the design for the sculptures for the pediment, which portrays Mary Magdalene kneeling to intercede for the Damned; the winner was Philippe Joseph Henri Lemaire. The nave was vaulted in 1831, and the monument of repentance for Revolt was rededicated as a monument of national reconciliation by the July Monarchy. The building was briefly considered for use as a railway station in 1837, but the building was eventually consecrated as a church in 1842.

The construction of the first church on this site began in 1764.

However, after the architect’s death in 1777, his successor decided to demolish the entire structure and replace it with a new temple. When the Revolution began, the building of the church was halted until the authorities determined what to do with it.
The neoclassical façade of La Madeleine, which resembles an ancient Greek temple, is highly striking from the outside. The structure has 52 Corinthian columns that stand 65 feet (20 meters) tall, giving it a majestic appearance. There is a high relief on the pediment that represents the final judgment.
The dimly lit interior of the church consists of a single nave with three domes that are not visible from the outside. A statue of St Mary Magdalene stands over the High Alter, and a fresco depicting the origins of Christianity can be found in the dome above the statue.
The façade of Madeleine Church is especially beautiful. The temple’s interior is also different from other places of worship constructed at the time because it is dimly lit and has few decorative features, giving it a unique feel.
