Rue André del Sarte

Arrondissement 18

Number 17, La Révolution prolétarienne

From January to June 1925 this is where Pierre Monatte and Alfred Rosmer published their dissident Communist journal La Révolution prolétarienne

Named after a 16th century Italian painter in 1880, the old Montmartre street was originally called the rue Saint-André. Its biggest claim to fame, apart from hosting Monatte‘s oppositional publication, La Révolution prolétarienne, at No. 17 in 1925 is the recent discovery (in 1988) of one of the last wells found in Montmartre – at 17b.
