Reading Time: < 1 minute

A sculpture titled ‘The Marriage of Figaro’ made of lemons and oranges is presented during the 88th Lemon Festival in Menton, France.

This year, the festival’s theme is ‘Operas and dances’ and runs from 12 February to 27 February 2022. Located next to the Italian border, Menton is renowned for its citric fruit industry, boosted by a temperate Mediterranean climate.

Local legend has it that the Biblical Eve buried a lemon in the ground at the Bay of Garavan; the town of Menton later sprang up from that spot.
