Since 2012, the Fondation Philanthropia has been generously assisting the Palace of Versailles in its priority work sites intended to preserve our heritage. These renovation project s require the services of a variety of highly-skilled professions, offering an opportunity for the transmission of classical techniques and know-how and contributing to the training of apprentices destined to form part of tomorrow’s new generation of arts craftsmen.
“The partnership between the Palace of Versailles and Fondation Philanthropia led to the renovation of the Latona Fountain and that of the Grand Trianon. These worksites were exemplary in their conduct and their results. These successes inspired us to the take up the challenge of helping to rest ore the Royal Chapel. As in the past , we remain faithful to our priorities in terms of impact : to offer apprentices training experience in the artistic craft s needed by the Palace of Versailles, and attract other sponsors in the joint financing or in the contribution of skills.” Denis Pittet, President of Fondation Philanthropia.
