The bust of Dalida

Remember her voice, warm and sensual, which rolled the “r”, her long golden hair and flawless silhouette molded in long sequined dresses. With a repertoire of more than 700 songs, interpreted in several languages, and 120 million records sold during his lifetime, Dalida is an icon of the popular song, still adulated today. The singer lived in Montmartre from 1962 until her suicide in 1987. To honor her, a bronze bust was erected on a square that bears her name, 200m from her former home. At the Montmartre cemetery, where the star rests, another effigy decorates her grave, always very visited.
