The “The Giacometti: a family of creators” exhibition honors a family of artists. Its curator, Peter Knapp, proposes to showcase the talent and originality of the Giacometti: the world famous Alberto, his father Giovanni, his cousin Augusto, and his two brothers, Diego and Bruno. They were painters, sculptors and architects who left their mark on 20th century art.
Brought together for the first time in France, the Giacometti are five artists with different but intertwined paths. This original exhibition introduces us to the cultural family into which Alberto Giacometti, the most famous among the general public, was born. It bears witness to this family’s place in art and the links forged among the five family members.Press release and photos on request at the press section of the Maeght Foundation

European project SuCCeS
A Franco-Italian culture and tourism
On the SuCCeS trail, Europe is by our side!
The European cross-border cooperation programme INTERREG ALCOTRA has financed a large-scale project between the communes of Saint-Paul de Vence and Ceresole d'Alba (an Italian commune in Piedmont), linked by the same historical heritage: the Battle of Ceresole.
This forward-looking project, called SuCCeS - "Sur les Chemins de la Bataille de Ceresole" - has created new itineraries to enhance the cultural heritage and promote sustainable cross-border tourism between the two communes.
SuCCeS offers the public a new and enriched experience through virtual and connected guided tours, using new technologies (NFC chips: Near Field Communication); heritage and tourist signage available in three languages and educational tools.
The SuCCeS project has enabled the creation of new cultural and tourist facilities, the enhancement of existing heritage and the implementation of innovative digital tools to offer you a unique visiting experience in Saint-Paul de Vence and Ceresole d'Alba.
In order to promote this new tourist offer, a joint promotion plan has been drawn up. Aimed at the general public and schoolchildren, this plan has made it possible to develop the tools needed to communicate the project: digital communication, videos, photos, newsletter, posters, press kit and trilingual flyer.
The Maeght Foundation
The Maeght Foundation
A place of dialogue between art and nature
Inaugurated on July 28th, 1964 by André Malraux, the Fondation Marguerite and Aimé Maeght has become one of the major international cultural institutions. The Maeght Foundation is a story of family and friendship. Aimé & Marguerite Maeght came up with the idea and the funding in collaboration with Catalonian architect Josep Lluis Sert.
Their artist friends participated in the design and in bringing the project to fruition. Joan Miró, Marc Chagall, Alberto Giacometti, Georges Braque, Alexander Calder and Fernand Léger all found the ideal creative setting in a museum at one with nature, where the rooms and the gardens interact in perfect harmony. The Maeght Foundation has one of the largest collections of paintings, sculptures, drawings and graphic works of modern and contemporary art in Europe.Press release and photos on request at the press section of the Maeght Foundation

Guided Tours on Art
The Folon chapel
"Associating my name with a chapel in Saint-Paul de Vence will be an expression of my love for all those in the village whom I have loved". Decorating the White Penitents’ chapel was one of Folon’s last projects. Saint-Paul de Vence was the perfect setting for the work of an artist so sensitive to the beauty of shapes, substances and the light.Download the press pack
In the footsteps of Marc Chagall
This lover of light and the Mediterranean land lived in Saint-Paul for nearly 20 years, tirelessly integrating the village and its ramparts in his paintings. Here, Marc Chagall painted his favourite theme, love, over and over again.Download the press pack
