After two years of closure, the palace reopened its doors this summer, and reveals superb frescoes of the Italian Renaissance.
Change in Monaco. The Prince’s Palace of the Rock reopened its doors to the public this summer after being closed for two years.
An event that allows you to discover “the redevelopment of the main apartments as well as the 600 m² of Renaissance frescoes rediscovered and restored since 2015”, indicates the city of Monaco.
These frescoes inspired by ancient mythology, unearthed by chance in 2013 during a restoration of the paintings of the palace, also make it possible to learn more about the history of the principality, boasts Monaco on Instagram:
“This discovery resonates singularly with the very history of the Principality and its centuries-old ties with the Mediterranean world and the great myths that have shaped its culture and, more generally, its influence in the Western world.”
The frescoes were found in an excellent state of preservation. “We can say that we have preserved about 70%, or even a little more, of existing fragments”, declared on France 3 Marion Jaulin, site manager for the restoration of the Palace of Monaco.
