For nearly 25 years, the common thread of Generali France’s artistic sponsorship actions has been the enhancement of Italian heritage in France, taking into account the historical roots of its parent company.
At the end of the 1990s, with the Institut de France, his work began with the restoration of the great fresco by Giambattista Tiepolo and support for the exhibition “Primitives Italiens” at the Jacquemart-André Museum in Paris. It continued in 2003 at the Château de Chantilly with the renovation of the Giotto’s Cabinet, and in 2006 at the Royal Abbey of Chaalis with the restoration of a Primatice decoration.
Generali France also regularly supports temporary exhibitions on Italian Art: the exhibition of reproductions of Giotto’s frescoes from the Basilica of Saint Francis in Assisi to the Sorbonne (2004), the exhibition “Le Paradis de Tintoret a” at the Louvre Museum and the travelling exhibition “Splendours de Venise” (2006 – Caen and Bordeaux). More recently, Generali was the patron, in 2017, of the exhibition “Leonard in France” at the Italian Embassy or the retrospective “Eblouissante Venise ! “at the Grand Palais in 2018.
It is in line with this policy that the partnership with the Domaine national de Chambord is part of this policy. Leonardo da Vinci’s imprint makes Chambord a monument whose architecture is under Italian influence and a symbol of the cultural proximity of the two countries. Generali France is a sponsor of the exhibition “Utopia at work” and the creation of the permaculture vegetable garden.
At the request of the President of the Republic, Emmanuel Macron, Philippe Donnet, CEO of the Generali Group, has been appointed Chairman of the Patrons Committee to promote Chambord’s 500th anniversary projects to French and international companies.
