Since 2012, we bring prestigious, multi technological shows to an ever-bigger audience, eager to discover beautiful monuments emblematic of French history.
Amaclio Productions creates, produces and sets events; its aim is to exalt French heritage. The firm has been created by François Nicolas, entrepreneur in love with history and literature, and Bruno Seillier, stage director and scriptwriter. We wish to make you love history as much as we do.
Come along on an emotional and magical journey, and discover with Amaclio’s shows the mysteries of some highly symbolic landmarks of France!
The very name Amaclio Productions comes from the ancient european history. From the latin verb amare meaning “to love” and the name of the Greek muse of history Clio, our mission takes shape: we wish to make you love history as much as we do, by magnifying French heritage.
By using the latest infography and screening technologies, our monumental historical shows melt together what has been and what is to come. The wonders of architecture come to a new life before the eyes of the spectator of today. Who ever said that the monuments should remain silent and stuck in the past? One only needs to cast a new light upon the stones for them to be alive again…
