CIC Bank, supporter of the musée de l'Armée
CIC Bank has been supporting Musée de l’Armée at Les Invalides in its programmes of culture and heritage since 2003. It sponsors the museum’s temporary exhibitions in particular, which trace the major events in France’s history, presenting both its high points and its tribulations.
Knights & Bombards: From Agincourt to Marignano, 1415-1515, demonstrates how «these two emblematic battles, one shameful the other glorious, mark either end of a hundred years of major change, from the decline of the Middle Ages to a dazzling modern age.» By partnering with the exhibition, CIC hopes to help raise awareness among a wide audience, including the younger generations, of the fact that knowledge of the past is a source of energy from which eachof us can draw greater confidence in the future.
Multimedia displays and mobile app
For CIC, this exhibition has also provided the opportunity to increase its support by funding the design and creation of permanent multimedia displays, which will enrich and enliven the permanent displays in the museum’s ancient department after the end of the exhibition.
These tools help create a detailed reconstruction of the two battles that form the framework of the itinerary. They provide the background to the weapons, armour and artillery on display and tie in with the illuminated manuscripts and collections of drawings depicting the battles. They convey the scale and size of the confrontation; for example with the reconstruction of a pike square formation. Lastly, because exhibitions nowadays must also be accessible to anyone at any time in virtual format, ‘Knights and Bombards’ will be the first exhibition accessible via the Musée de l’Armée app, which aims to accompany and enhance the work done by the museum to disseminate its output to the widest, most diverse audience possible.
