When the Principality celebrates the myth of the automobile
For the first time at the base of the circuit, an exhibition-event will trace the epic history of the automobile from 1893 to the present day on one of its favourite territories, the Principality of Monaco. The legendary sporting events of the Monte-Carlo Grand Prix and Rally will be invoked, as will the elegance contests and the real princely passion for the automobile as an object. Rodolphe Rapetti, general heritage curator, director of the national domains and museums of Compiègne and Blérancourt, curates the anthology event, bringing together fifty or so automobiles that have taken part in, or even won, one of these great Monaco events, photographic documents and unpublished archives, as well as rarely seen automobilia objects from public and private collections. “Monaco and the Automobile” are two words that are anchored in the collective imagination and intimately connected with regards to the development of their history and identity. Designed as both an exploration and a celebration, this exhibition is the most ambitious project dedicated to this theme. The exhibition benefits from the exceptional participation of the Automobile Club de Monaco, the Museum of the Cars Collection of H.S.H. the Prince of Monaco, the Prince’s Palace, the Société des Bains de Mer, the Monaco Audiovisual Institute and the support of the Automobile Club de France.
