Exhibition "La vision du prince. Jacques Rueff, Minister of State to Prince Rainier III. 1949-1950".

November 6, 2023 to January 26, 2024

An exhibition presented by the Mission de préfiguration des Archives nationales and the Service central des archives et de la documentation administrative, with the collaboration of the Archives du Palais de Monaco and the Institut audiovisuel de Monaco. 

Upon his accession, Prince Rainier III personally chose a prominent economist, Jacques Rueff (1896-1978), to be the first of his ministers of state. Enlisted in the Liberation armies at the end of the Second World War, the future sovereign saw him as an officer in the Military Mission for German and Austrian Affairs in Berlin. This choice augured a strong political vision for the Principality in the months following his accession to the throne. In 1949 and 1950, the Prince, together with Jacques Rueff, set the milestones for the decades to come. Thus, the recourse to the expertise of the architect and town planner Le Corbusier would give Rainier III his vocation as a builder prince.
