Franck Riester, Minister of Culture, wishes to salute the tremendous success of the heritage lotto committed by Stéphane Bern, on the initiative of the President of the Republic.

A review is currently underway on this first lottery as well as a reflection on the organization of another edition next year. In this context, stakeholders have recently been met.

The government does not want to change the legal provisions of the lottery but to continue, as the minister did this year by obtaining the thaw of 21 million euros, to accompany the enthusiasm of the French for local heritage in the territories, vernacular heritage, threatened heritage. 

Accompanied by Stéphane Bern, from the Fondation du patrimoine and the Française des jeux, the Minister will visit sites receiving support for the 2018 lottery.
