Le Passé d’Un Palace En Héritage

The Legacy Of A Palace


Star of Cannes, the Martinez Hotel has established itself as one of the largest palaces in Europe. Yet the picture is far from idyllic, as its walls are witnesses of ironic twists of history.

In 1927, Emmanuel Martinez, the founder of the Hotel, assigned the construction to Frederic d’Annela who became a shareholder. But in 1945, Martinez is accused of collaboration with the enemy and the hotel was confiscated by the state. Although he was cleared in court in 1949, the state maintained the palace in receivership.

75 years later, their heirs, penniless, are still struggling to find fortune and restore the honour of their parents expressing different motivations: moral rehabilitation and restored honour to the daughter of Emmanuel Martinez, financial compensation and social revenge for the children of Frederick d’Annela.
