Res Gallicae

Res Gallicae is a collaborative project between three Parisian workshops, which are repairing book bindings, and a Swiss atelier, which is restoring the paper pages of volumes damaged in the 2004 fire. Their work is being funded through donations, sponsoring and the generous support of book patrons. The cost of restoring the 2,400 volumes of French provenance is estimated at 3.6 million euros. The non-profit organisation Res Gallicae was established in Paris to support the ongoing restoration efforts, which are scheduled to conclude in 2015. The French president François Hollande and German federal president Joachim Gauck have accepted joint patronage for this remarkable German-French cultural project.

In addition to the Res Gallicae project, other partners are also involved in repairing damage caused by the fire.

Projects of the Klassik Stiftung Weimar are funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Free State of Thuringia, represented by the State Chancellery of Thuringia, Department of Culture and the Arts.
