A fantastic cultural event: MONACOPOLIS!

 
 

At the initiative of the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco (NMNM), the 150th anniversary of Monte-Carlo SBM will begin with a cultural event: MONACOPOLIS.

 

150 ans Monte-Carlo SBM

This unique exhibition retraces the various steps taken in the urbanisation and expansion of a legendary city, entirely dedicated to pleasure and entertainment.

 

Villa Sauber presents the birth of the emblematic neighbourhood of Monte-Carlo. 600 historic plans, mainly sourced from the Monte-Carlo SBM archives, demonstrate the permanent state of renewal of the territory.

 

Villa Paloma concentrates on architectural planning submitted since the 1940s, both by renowned architects and visionaries (Eugène Beaudoin, Le Corbusier) and remarkable newcomers surpassing one another in ingenuity (Henry Bulgheroni).

 

A not-to-be-missed exhibition in order to discover the history of the urbanisation of the Principality of Monaco
