«It's an invitation to come and discover the sometimes unknown resources of the French spirit, for which creation is dedicated to a certain Art de Vivre...»

François Doubin, former minister and founding president of the eponymous association, thus defined the "City and the Applied Arts" label. A saying that is as true today as it was then... as Le Cannet cultivates its art de vivre daily!

The City and the Applied Arts label was thus created in May 1992, the outcome of a meeting between local elected officials and professionals to promote professions, some of which date back many centuries. It is awarded to towns that are actively involved in helping craftsmen, in furthering the creation of workshops and in creating local promotion structures. First distinguished in 2004, Le Cannet is one of 64 French towns to hold this title, and one of 5 in the Alpes-Maritimes region.
