The Princess wished to create an exhibition on a circus theme, which was inaugurated on Tuesday, 21 November by the Princely Family.
As you enter the premises that previously housed the Prince’s Car Collection, on the Terrasses de Fontvieille, the sunlight gives way to subdued lighting and suddenly you’re in… a red and white circus tent! Where a big exhibition about the circus, and more specifically the International Festival initiated by Prince Rainier III, comes to life.
Stage costumes, official records, archive photos and video footage, props, artwork… The exhibition celebrates a double anniversary: the 50th anniversary of the Monte-Carlo International Circus Festival and the 100th of the birth of Prince Rainier III. “It’s a fortunate coincidence,” smiles Princess Stéphanie, the initiator of this major project entitled “The Prince at the Heart of the Circus.”
“My father passed his love of the circus on to me, it’s deep in my veins,” said the Princess, who is delighted to be working with Charlène Dray, a former student at the Pavillon Bosio who holds a doctorate in circus studies and is the exhibition’s scientific curator. .. link to full length article at the Monaco Tribune.
