Hello dear K@rin

This unique night show in thema with the history of the building of Hôtel des Invalides in Paris related the history of famous political leaders of France who transformed this place

At the place of "Grenelle" where the Chuch of Saint Louis was already existing, the king Louis XIV decided to build an hospital for old soldiers, then used during the king wars. This Hospital had been quite destroyed during the french revolution, then Napoleon Bonaparte emperor ordered to rebuild the hospital for his troups.

The president Charles de Gaulle after World War II decided to open a museum of army and battles,

The photography of the show was pretty hard to obtain because the transition of pictures on the building was rather fast and all picture were constantly in motion

This was very interesting to see

Thanks for the compliments which i return to the people who have prepared the show I and they are proud that you LIke it

Warm greetings to the Netherlands from Italy
