French president Francois Hollande offers to safeguard the world's endangered artefacts at an upcoming Louvre storage facility
Just this August, Twitter was aflood with pictures of a secret bunker found at the Maharashtra Raj Bhavan complex in Mumbai’s Malabar Hill. The state’s governor took the chief minister on a guided tour of the secret chambers, which came fully equipped with living quarters too. The idea of secret, underground secure facilities isn’t a new one. But leave it to the French to build such a place for a museum, and eventually propose to open that up for the safekeeping of precious, endangered artifacts from areas that are worn-out or under duress.
