Saint-Étienne is still thought of by many as an industrial city polluted by its coal-mining industry. Without turning its back on its past, the city is a shining example of successful redevelopment: its façades have been whitewashed, and parks and attractive squares built. Above all, it has won its bid to become a centre for design, thus keeping alive the long tradition of innovation and creation carried on in the 19C by the large industrial companies, the most important of which was the Manufacture des Armes (Arms Manufacturer).
