Subtitles: English
The ARCHES series, presented by Les Rugissants, focuses on music and architecture. This time, Les Rugissants stopped in an emblematic building of Montreal.

Designed by architect Luigi Moretti and engineer Pier Luigi Nervi, the Tour de la Bourse (English: Stock Exchange Tower) is a perfect example of the International style. 48 stories high, it embodies the modernity and economic strength of Quebec in the1960s.

Roma nun fa’ la stupida stasera”, from the musical comedy Rugantino” and interpreted by Les Rugissants, is an allegory of the desire for emancipation and the thirst for novelty of that time. Rome, in the guise of a woman who transforms herself to escape the demands of the people, symbolizes the change experienced in a Montreal that is progressing towards an undeniably secular identity.
