By proposing two exhibitions a year in each venue, the NMNM reveals a long-ignored heritage and develops the discovery of the contemporary scene. As of now, “Training for a Museum” has determined the programmes of the Villa Sauber and the Villa Paloma according to two themes that are intimately linked with cultural, historical and artistic heritage of the Principality: Art and Performance at the Villa Sauber, Art and Territory at the Villa Paloma.

CULTURAL PROJECT: TRAINING FOR A MUSEUM

The mission of a museum, as defined by the International Council of Museums (ICOM), is to preserve, ensure continuity and communicate to society the value of cultural and natural heritage worldwide, in the present and the future, in its tangible and intangible states. For several years now, the team of the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco (or NMNM) has been reflecting, making inventories, organising, questioning... The consultation has included discussions with historians, restorers, designers, scenographers, writer and meetings with artists aiming at renewing our outlook on the concept of heritage and the way it is transmitted to the public. This collective work has been called "Training for a Museum". It focuses on enabling  the public to understand what a National Museum is and how it fits within contemporaneity. This training will continue until the opening of a building that will accommodate such an ambitious museographic project. By proposing two exhibitions a year in each venue, the NMNM will reveal a long-ignored heritage and develop the discovery of the contemporary scene.

HISTORY OF VILLA PALOMA

Based on information that has thus far come to light, it was an American, Edward N. Dickerson, who, in 1913, pooled six plots of land belonging to different proprietors in order to have a villa built and create a garden, in the Révoires neighbourhood, on the Boulevard de l'Observatoire. It would seem that a pavilion already stood on the main parcel, which was sold by Mr. Eugène Roganne, a sculptor and ornamentist.

The villa, called the "Villa Coquette" by Mr. Dickerson, was a four-storey building. Some maintain that the architect was the famous Sébastien Marcel Biasini, but because he passed away in 1913, this seems most unlikely.

HISTORY OF VILLA SAUBER AND ITS GARDENS

Villa Sauber is one of the last Belle Epoque villas in Monaco. In the absence of indisputable documentation, we do not know the precise date of the Villa's construction. However it is stated that at the beginning of the 1900's it belonged to the Blanc family who played a fundamental part in the development of the Société des Bains de Mer and the Casino of Monte-Carlo.

At the time the waterfront area was called Quartier des Bas-Moulins and Larvotto beach did not yet exist. The newly acquired property extends down to the track that follows the shoreline.
