At the Magnanerie, Sophie and Harrold discovered troglo, stone and silkworms.

Lively journalist Eloïse Bruzat decided to spend the morning at La Magnanerie, broadcasting live no less than 6 times within a couple of hours. She had the excellent idea to focus on the "troglos" (the caves we live in) as well as the silkworms.
