Monet, during his stay in 1884, was captured by the reflections and nuances of Bordighera, which he transposed into 38 vibrant canvases of light and color. The experience combines outdoor strolling with moments of virtual reality, where, wearing a VR headset, you will be transported inside six famous works by Monet. Among these, "Impression, Sunrise" and "Poppy Field" will make you experience the enchanting sunrise at the port of Le Havre and the effervescence of the summer atmosphere.

The stroll is guided by an actor who explores the boundary between real and virtual, showing how Bordighera and its lush nature are blended in the artist's brushstrokes. You will also have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the "Promenade," admiring the movements of Camille's dress and the swaying of the grass under a summer breeze, and to explore the beauty of Bordighera with its picturesque olive groves and lively colorful houses in "Bordighera," which Monet painted right here in 1884.

Finally, don't miss the "Water Lily Pond," where Monet's chromatic harmony and brushstrokes blend perfectly with the natural effects of water and light.
