It’s the 30th anniversary of Charlie Chaplin’s death and to pay tribute to the silent film legend, Swiss authorities have approved the creation of a musuem dedicated to his life and work. The building will be located at his old colonial-style mansion in Corsier-sur-Vevey, near Lausanne.
Architect, Philippe Melan is the creator of the project:
“There is the man Charlie Chaplin, there is the artist and there is his work. So we’re keeping a part of his house, the most personal and private, as it was. The new construction will allow us to include everything he made during his life.”
The musuem is scheduled to open to the public in 2009.
