It's a bit of a paradox because financially, we've had less income from tickets, of course, but we've made up for it with patronage. I have been able to spend more time searching for that financing and the result for 2020 is that it has never been so good financially.2. There has been a fully public patronage agreement with the Van Cleef and Arpels Jewellery School, for which we will receive an amount of 40,000 euros per year for three years to research them.
