If you think you’ve seen everything Paris has to offer, think again! Narrow streets, sprawling plazas, iconic monuments, and the emblematic skyline from the Trocadero… Paris’ most famous landmarks are beloved by many. However, why not wander off the beaten track for your next excursion? Hidden away in the 8th arrondissement - widely known for the Champs-Élysées and the Arc de Triomphe - an extraordinary pearl of French architecture awaits. The stunning Simone and Cino Del Duca Foundation is housed in the Pereire town house, built in the 19th century by Émile II Pereire, and opened its doors for the first time in 2023. A veritable jewel of architectural excellence, it was entrusted to the Dutch-born architect William Oscar Wilford Bouwens van der Boijen.


This elegant Parisian mansion boasts classical-style drawing rooms, a meticulously decorated library, a stunningly ornate study, and a host of other architectural treasures. A central skylight, covered by a glass roof, illuminates the large hall with a flood of natural light. Truly, no venue is better to host performances of some of history’s most exquisite operatic and theatrical shows - and the range of its beauty is matched only by the depth of its rich history.


In 1975, Simone Del Duca chose this exceptional location to establish her foundation as a tribute to her late husband, a patron of the arts and a major newspaper publisher. Since 2005, it has been taken on by the Institut de France, and to this day the Simone and Cino Del Duca Foundation continues to commit itself to spreading the arts, letters, and sciences in France and beyond. Why not pay it a visit, and discover a hair-raising performance whilst you’re there? No need to worry about the hordes of tourists - this exclusive location grants limited access to ensure guests can experience it in its undisturbed glory.
