About the venue
Palace with 1,500 rooms spread out in the heart of 130 hectares of park and gardens. Residence of the French sovereigns since the 12th century, entirely rebuilt by François I who kept only the keep formerly inhabited by King Saint Louis, and had a sumptuous interior decoration executed by Italian artists under the direction of Rosso and the Primatice (group of artists known as the Fontainebleau School). Notably enlarged by Henri IV, modified from the seventeenth to the nineteenth centuries by his successors, who partly destroyed the decoration of the sixteenth century.
