Since 1 January 2009, the 53 hectares classed as Monuments Historiques du Domaine de Marly have been under the management of the Public Establishment of the Palace, Museum and the National Estate of Versailles. This historic affiliation was an occasion for the Centre de Recherche du Château de Versailles to take stock of the knowledge about one of Louis XIV’s most original and most beautiful creations. Bringing together the subject’s best specialists, this interdisciplinary conference will of course gather historians, art and technical historians, and archaeologists, in order to address all aspects of Marly: the architecture, the gardens, the collections and the waters, and this residence’s uses and functioning under the Ancien Régime, not to mention the estate’s future prospects. It will highlight Marly’s actual influence on other achievements in Europe and the New World.  

Inter­na­tio­nal symposium orga­nized by the Centre de Recher­che du Châ­teau de Versailles.

Research committee: Mathieu da Vinha, Henrik Harpsoe, Raphaël Masson, Benjamin Ringot.
