This unique sponsored project was sponsored by Nicholas. Hayek implemented it in 2009, and the sponsorship involved millions of euros. It will be completed this year under Hayek’s supervision. The restoration project began in the early 1980s. The final stage of the project is several exhibition halls located in the Louvre, which will house all 18th century art collections. Closed for nearly a decade, these 2,500 square meters of showrooms have now been completely refurbished. The museum school and education lecture hall have also been completely built. This move allows the collection to be displayed in a distinctive palace building, making it particularly legible. Gorgeous collections run through European history and symbolize a glorious page of Europe’s rich cultural heritage.
