Allianz Riviera

Allianz Riviera was born of a Public/Private Partnership (PPP), a principle whereby a public authority entrusts private partners with the financing and management of a facility of public interest. The public partners are the Town of Nice, the Métropole Côte d'Azur, General Council of the Alpes-Maritimes, Regional Council of Provence Alpes Côtes d'Azur and the State. The private partners are VINCI Concessions, La Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations, and South Europe Infrastructure Equity (SEIEF).
