Forbidden City Monaco attracts 47,000 visitors

By Staff Writer - September 13, 2017

Monaco’s Grimaldi Forum has recorded one of its best figures for attendance at its summer exhibition, with 47,000 people visiting the acclaimed “The Forbidden City”.

“We could have reached the symbolic landmark of 50,000 visitors but the constraints of our event calendar are such that we could not exceed 60 days,” said Sylvie Biancheri, Director General.

She added that this was the type of exhibition that the public has come to expect from the Grimaldi Forum, with a strong heritage theme and yet accessible to a wide audience.

Ms Biancheri also announced the theme of the summer exhibition for 2018: “The Gold of the Pharaohs,” with an exceptional loan of 150 pieces from the collections of the Cairo Museum.

Under the guidance of Christiane Zieglern, the event will go back 2,500 years of history from the perspective of the craftsman in precious metals.
