About the Author
Florent Verstraeten was born and grew up in Brussels. Curious about everything, he paces the city, always looking for the most secrets spots that even the inhabitants don't know. In his free time, he organizes bicycle or pedestrian tours in various districts of Brussels. His ambition: to awaken the desire to walk around in our own city and reclaim it. Isabelle de Pange was born in Uccle and lives in Schlle aerbeek. She is an art historian (at the UCL) and is an architecture enthusiast. She has worked for a long time at the Inventory of Architectural Heritage of Bruxelles-Capitale, before she became curator of the museums of Brussels City, from 2015 to 2018. She has signed a lot of publications about her town.
