To celebrate the 50 years of diplomatic relations between France and China, the Royal Château of Amboise is hosting the ' A Thread of Silk, from China to Amboise ' exhibition, which is open daily from 17 April to 16 November. The event will highlight the fascination of the French with Chinese culture and the long-standing trade and cultural relations and exchanges between the two countries. Some silks belonging to the collections of the château will be on special display in the royal apartments and enriched by pieces generously loaned for the exhibition. The collection’s exhibits can be admired as part of a visit to the royal apartments.
This historical heritage initiative has been introduced by the Fondation Saint-Louis, supported by the 'Tours, cité de la Soie' (Tours, City of Silk) association and the Commissariat Général Français to celebrate the 50 years of diplomatic relations between France and China.
