Technical meeting “Refurnishing Palaces and Castles”


This technical meeting which was held at the Château de Chambord (France), lies within the scope of an overall reflection on the refurbishment of the rooms of the castle (decor and furniture) over the centuries.

This initiative is part of a strategic development project that will last from 2014 to 2019. It is a matter of finding the balance between the purely architectural significance of the monument and the way it was used by royal and then by princely residents in the course of its history.
