- Architectural lighting: sophisticated lighting highlights the venue’s architecture.


- The screening of current immersive digital exhibitions: offer your guests an opportunity to embark on an exceptional journey that takes them into the heart of the world of painting. Masterpieces by the great masters of the history of art are brought to life, accompanied by music, on more than 3,300 m2 of projection surface. Total duration: 50 minutes.


- A catalogue of still and/or animated ambiances: choose from among a selection of  ambiances related to the exhibition’s theme or other themes.
