Students from the Academy Rainier III will perform their traditional spring concert Wednesday, April 4, at the Théâtre des Variétés. The show begins at 7 pm and admission is free.

Also, the Monaco Media Library is organising a free lecture – “Jean Gilletta and Monaco: a history of landscapes” – at 6:30 pm at 8 Rue Louis Notari.

The self-taught photographer is said to have taken 10,000 shots of south-eastern France and “Jean Gilletta and Monaco: a history of landscapes” will provide a glimpse of the prodigious metamorphosis of a landscape through many photographs, from the postcard to unpublished panoramas.

The evening will be hosted by Jean-Paul Potron, a specialist in landscape representation of the Riviera, who has published several books on the theme. In 2006, on the 150th anniversary of the birth of the artist, Potron wrote a monograph on Gilletta, the photographer and also the publisher. In 1880, Gilletta created his own publishing firm, one of the oldest French firms still active in this sector.

Potron also prefaced the book “Principality of Monaco: Ancient Views” (Monaco, vues anciennes) published in 2016 by Gilletta/Nice-Matin Editions and recently organised the exhibition ” Jean Gilletta and the Côte d’Azur”, presented at the Musée Masséna in Nice from November 17, 2017 to March 25, 2018.
