Monaco and the automobile, from 1897 to the present day

"Monaco and the Automobile": two anthological and complementary terms, as the history of the Principality and that of the automobile are intimately linked. Monaco is inseparable from the two events which, from their origins, have been and remain today major events in international motor racing: the Monte Carlo Rally and the Monaco Grand Prix.

The catalog will take the form of fifty cars that have authentically competed in one of these major Monegasque events.
Accompanied by a wide variety of works and memorabilia related to these events (autographed silver photography, trophies, old posters and other archives often unpublished), they will play the role of witnesses who forged the legend. The greatest personalities of the racing world have left their mark on the asphalt of the Principality's streets and the roads leading to them. Monaco is developing, its urban planning is changing day after day around a circuit that remains virtually unchanged. On each page, the reader can evoke a memory, bring to life an image that is part of the automobile legend of the Rock.
