Salon International du Patrimoine Culturel

Since 1995, held in the prestigious setting of the Carrousel du Louvre, the International Heritage Show has been both a witness to and an active player of the safeguarding of heritage, whether immovable or movable, material or immaterial.

A stay at Le Placide hotel Saint Germain des Près will be an excellent place to go there.

It brings together all the sectors from the world of heritage: restorers and art societies, forecasters and project managers, local and institutional authorities, associations, schools, editors, press…

In 2008, the event took on an international dimensions, hence boosting the presence of foreign authorities.

In 2009, Ateliers d’Art de France, the largest French professional craft federation became the owner of the fair. Its presence has strengthened the strategy and has given a new impetus to the event.

For the 2013 edition, at a time when many dream of reliving the Palace of Saint-Cloud, and the year we celebrate the 400th anniversary of the birth of André Le Nôtre, the great landscape gardener behind the splendid park that offered the set for Louis XIV's magnificent castle, a team of passionate enthusiasts has embarked on the task of offering a new lease of life to this great historic property, via an exceptional limited and numbered edition.

A pictorial resurrection of the palace that was burned down in 1870, via two contrasting photographic reports: one commissioned by Napoleon III, the other a modern production. A rare, limited and numbered edition.
