Description

Salle d'Arms du Figaro was established in a vacant first floor room of the Parisian Le Figaro newspaper with the keen permission of Hippolyte de Villemessant, Le Figaro's patron. The journalists, editors, clerks, and cashiers desired a salle "especially to permit a particularly healthy and hygienic exercise after their daily, and sometimes very difficult intellectual work." Arsène Vigeant was chosen to instruct and Salle d'Armes du Figaro became a popular destination for traveling amateurs and masters. The salle was also the site of a major Franco-Italian contest between Turillo de San Malato, father of Athos de San Malato, and Louis Merignac, father of Louis Lucien Merignac.
