The Fondation des États-Unis was constructed to symbolise the Franco-American relationship and to offer a lodging for American students and researchers in Paris. The building is U-shaped and made up of a central section on boulevard Jourdan and two wings on the side of the park.
All of Robert La Montagne Saint-Hubert’s frescos, representing the four ages of French art (the Roman period, the mystical period, the renaissance and the classical period) were rediscovered in the Grand Salon in 1994 by the then director. The frescos were restored by a team of experts from the Louvre.
Thanks to its 43 buildings, the Cité internationale offers a rich cultural and artistic program to all audiences : concerts, screenings, conferences, exhibitions, shows…
