Prince Rainier III centenary: “May 31 was magical”

The Rainier III Centenary commemorations have come to an end. After a year of celebrations, Princess Stéphanie paid a final tribute to Prince Rainier III and looked back on 2023’s highlights. 

“It was even better than I could have imagined.”  Princess Stéphanie spoke about the past year to Monaco Info, in an interview that took place in the inner sanctum of the Prince’s Palace.

“It was a crazy gamble to organise commemorations over such a long period (…) We convinced everyone that it was a good idea, that we had to do it and show all the different facets of Prince Rainier (…) So people could learn about or rediscover him through his passions, and his first passion was Monaco,” said the Prince’s youngest child.

“My father loved spending time with the Monegasques, and the residents too.”

“The greatest gift was that everyone took part,”  Princess Stéphanie continued, referring to the day of 31 May 2023, when the Rock provided the backdrop for the launch of the commemorations.  “It was an incredible day,”  the Princess said, “seeing so many people turn out, everyone was in high spirits, young and old (…) My father loved spending time with the Monegasques, and the residents too. Every time there was an event, he would get everyone together, so it was very much in his image.”

The year featured many exhibitions in honour of Prince Rainier III, some of which are still running, as well as a host of projects and events such as a documentary in which the Sovereign tells his own story, and the staging of a play that he acted in as a young man. “Everything that happened went really well and was a success, so I can only be very happy and proud to have been able to do this for him,” Princess Stéphanie said with a smile, recalling fond memories of the “magical day on 31 May” in particular.

When I get involved in a project, I see it through.

When asked about her strong involvement in the different projects, the Princess replied that she has “perhaps inherited this character trait from [her] Dad … When I get involved in a project, I see it through, I give it my all so that it works out and is a success, in the same what that he never gave up.” The Princess had a special word for Albert Croesi, secretary of the Centenary Organising Committee, who passed away during the night of Friday 2 to Saturday 3 June 2023, at the age of 62. “ He left us too soon  (…) It was hard to carry on the commemorations without him. Without the enthusiasm and energy of Albert and his staff, we could never have achieved everything we did,”  concluded Princess Stephanie, visibly emotional.

Monaco authorises maternity leave for self-employed

The bill was voted by the National Council on Thursday, February 22.

Bill 1.086 was tabled by the Government of Monaco three months ago. It was intended to introduce maternity leave for self-employed workers registered with the Caisse d’assurance maladie, accident et maternité des travailleurs indépendants (CAMTI – Monaco’s Sickness, Accident and Maternity Insurance Fund for Self-employed Workers). On Thursday, during a Public Legislative Session, the elected members of the National Council voted unanimously and without amendment in favour of the bill, “whose purpose is to afford the self-employed a right that has long been granted to private sector employees and civil servants and agents of the State and the Municipality,” the Prince’s Government stated.

“The bill represents a significant step forward, as it means equality at last for all pregnant women, whether they are in the private or public sector, or self-employed. From now on, all women can take maternity leave of at least 18 weeks,”  said Marine Hugonnet-Grisoul, appointed as rapporteur of the bill before the National Council. “Of course, our ambition would have been to go further by extending this leave to paternity leave for self-employed workers, as well as adoption leave,” she added.

Christophe Robino, Minister for Health and Social Affairs, welcomed the new reform, stressing that it “will further strengthen the social protection system of the Principality.”  He added that “the scheme will, in parallel, provide an additional tool of socio-economic attractiveness in a key sector for the country’s economy and competitiveness.”

Monaco Economic Board sets sights on Saudi Arabia

The MEB’s business delegation will be heading for Riyadh tomorrow.

The Hôtel Méridien Beach Plaza hosted the 47th MEB Members’ Rendez-Vous on January 18. During the traditional networking event, which was attended by over 300 entrepreneurs, Michel Dotta, Chairman of the MEB, paid tribute to the work of Etienne Franzi at the head of the Association Monégasque des Activités Financières (AMAF). Etienne Franzi chaired the Monaco Association for Financial Activities for 25 years, before recently handing over to Robert Laure. Paying tribute to “remarkable work that has transformed an employers’ association into a veritable institution, an essential player in our economic landscape,”  Michel Dotta underlined the partnership between the AMAF and the MEB, specifying that the Association “is playing an active role in the tremendous effort that is underway to make the Principality a leading and well-respected financial centre.”

The evening was also an opportunity to look at the MEB’s ‘diary’, and more specifically the upcoming economic mission to Riyadh from 23 to 27 January.  “We are heading to Saudi Arabia, and we are already very proud of the number of companies involved,” Guillaume Rose, Executive Director of the MEB, told Monaco Info. 47 companies and 62 individuals in fact, the Monaco Economic Board’s biggest foreign delegation for years! During the trip, and following on from the relatively recent connections made between the Kingdom and our Sovereign, we aim to establish lasting economic relations with Saudi Arabia. The appointment book is already full for our companies!”

Several networking sessions are planned in the Saudi capital, as well as attendance of the Riyadh E-Prix. The MEB will also be travelling to Morocco from 16 to 19 April, then to London from 10 to 13 June. Conversely, delegations of Tunisian and Austrian entrepreneurs will be visiting the Principality on 22 February and 18 April respectively.

Handipact: Companies urged to take action

Lionel Galfré, the Government’s technical advisor on people with disabilities, was also invited to speak at the event. The former Director of MonacoTech pointed out that people with disabilities are workers and consumers like everyone else, and called on businesses to join forces with the Government, which is aiming to make Monaco a centre of excellence in terms of inclusion thanks to the recently launched “Handipact” initiative.

“The Government wants to put Handipact in place to ensure inclusion and consideration of disability in Monaco, so that the Principality is a place where disability is a natural and accepted part of society. Companies have a pivotal role to play in the project, because work is central, social existence comes through work, so the role of companies is very important“, he told Monaco Info.

A new Premium membership package

Guillaume Rose also took the opportunity of the Members’ Rendez-Vous to announce a new membership structure for the MEB. From now on, companies will be able to choose between two types: Classic or Premium.

The new Premium package provides six additional benefits over the Classic version:

  • Exclusive annual events for Premium members only.
  • Priority allocation for invitations that the MEB receives through one of its partners (events, trade fairs, etc.).

  • Support from the MEB communications team regarding contacts with the local media.

Ecoletopie: satisfactory initial results from teaching experiment

In an experiment called Ecoletopie – which translates roughly as ‘Schooltopia’ – Saint-Charles school has been testing a new classroom layout since September.

Bouncy seating, giant cushions and mobile tables have replaced traditional classroom furniture. The tables are now arranged in a ‘U’ shape and large pillows are placed in the centre. The scheme, which has been running since September, is in partnership with the New National Museum of Monaco (NMNM), the Department of National Education, Youth and Sport (DENJS) and the Prince Albert II Foundation. The new furniture has already won over the CM1 pupils and their teachers at Saint-Charles school. Interviewed by Monaco Info, James, a pupil, said:  “We’re free to do pretty much what we want on the furniture and it makes us feel good.”

The experiment came to an end on Wednesday 21 February, in the presence of the partners’ representatives  – © Communication Department / Manuel Vitali  

In designing the space, the Smarin design studio focused primarily on the sitting position. Designer Stephanie Marin said on state television, “We designed bouncy seats, so that the children would have a little more gestural freedom to express themselves with. The idea being that it would have a positive knock-on effect, rather than them being restless.”

The staff are also already seeing a positive impact on school work. “The environment encourages cooperative teaching methods,”  teacher Sylvie De Almeida told Monaco Info. “When the children have finished, they can still be mobile… they can go and sit on the cushions. The appeal of sitting on a cushion makes even the non-bookworms want to read, and we’ve had very good results, much better than with traditional furniture,” she said.

SBM’s Syndicat des Jeux Européens supports two of the Principality’s organisations.

Two cheques for €2,500 were awarded to Fight Aids Monaco and the Scientific Centre of Monaco.

The donations by the Syndicat des Jeux Européens (SJE – European Gaming Union) were handed over on Tuesday 20 February on the steps of the Casino de Monte-Carlo. This year, the SBM shareholder decided to support two major players in the fight against and research into serious diseases, the Monaco Scientific Centre (CSM) and Fight Aids Monaco.

In a spirit of “solidarity and sharing,”  the SJE donated a part of the dividends received from the SBM to the two organisations. “[the SJE] is an SBM shareholder and it passes [dividends] on each year to charitable concerns,” Roman Aureglia, chef de table at the Casino de Monte-Carlo, told Monaco Info.

A donation for research

The paediatric brain cancer research carried out in the Medical Biology department at the CSM requires significant equipment and investment. “Our team is developing very innovative study models based on state-of-the-art technologies and techniques,”  said Dr Vincent Picco.

“This new donation by the Syndicat des Jeux Européens  will help us complete the genetic characterisation of the models we are developing in the laboratory,  which allow us to establish a correspondence with what is happening in children. Their renewed support is a great incentive for our team and our strategy, a sign of confidence in our work,” said the Doctor.

Supporting HIV-positive individuals

The Fight Aids Monaco charity, founded by Princess Stéphanie in 2004, will be inviting its members to meet up on June 25, 2024. “This generous donation will directly benefit the people we support in this our 20th anniversary year.  It means we can organise a day-long event for our members,” said Christophe Glasser, the charity’s Coordinator.

“Bleu Pastor” celebrates Monegasque painter Philippe Pastor

In collaboration with the Princess Charlene Foundation, the Robilant + Voena art gallery has agreed to promote the artist’s work in Saint-Moritz, Switzerland.

“Bleu Pastor” is entirely dedicated to Philippe Pastor’s artworks. Talented and committed to environmental causes, the Monegasque artist has toured the world. His works are an ideal marriage of art and action at the renowned Swiss art gallery, for its second exhibition of the season. The Princess Charlene Foundation has also joined the project, in order to continue its fight against drowning and to promote a sustainable future for children, through art.

Raising global awareness through works of art

The colour blue, Pastor’s symbol, shines out in 15 paintings on display at the Forum Paracelsus, an ancient religious and healing institution built on mineral springs. Carrying an even stronger message, his series of sculptures ‘Les Arbres Brûlés’ (Burnt Trees), has been set up just a stone’s throw away, in the luxurious Suvretta House hotel. Five of them are also on show at “Bleu Pastor”.

One of today’s leading artist-activists

Committed to defending and preserving our planet’s heritage, Pastor and his art continue to campaign all over the world.

Monaco to host ‘Association de la Sommellerie Internationale’ General Assembly

The art of sommellerie (wine waiting) will be celebrated in the Principality from 22 to 25 February. 

No fewer than 50 countries will be represented at the event, through national sommelier guilds and the attendance of a number of renowned sommeliers. In fact it is Monaco’s national guild, L’Association Monégasque des Sommeliers, that is organising this edition of the ASI’s General Assembly, led by its president-delegate Dominique Milardi. The edition will also mark the 55th anniversary of the ASI.

In an interview with the specialist media Terre de Vins, Dominique Milardi discussed the programme of debates in store. “The specific themes are not yet decided, but we will no doubt address international concerns, with the impact of climate change on wine growing, the evolution of wine markets, combatting counterfeiting, etc. The theme of education too, with best practices in sommelier training, and updating learning programmes using new technologies.”

On the ‘wine menu’ for the four-day event: a gala dinner at the Hotel de Paris, a conference on the theme of climate, a practical wine tasting workshop, and a tour of the “Rossese di Dolceacqua” in Isolabonna.

Carnival fun on Place d’Armes

Around a hundred children took part in the event organised by Monaco Town Council.

Entertainment, confetti and face painting all contributed to a festive atmosphere at the La Condamine market. Monaco Town Council organised a free, open-air winter carnival for children on Wednesday 21 February. Jugglers, contortionists, tightrope walkers, balloon twisters and make-up artists were on hand to entertain the youngsters in among the stalls on the Place d’Armes.

“It’s the first time we’ve organised a winter carnival in Monaco,”  said Christelle Costa from the Council’s events department.  “Our elected representative, Axelle Amalberti-Verdino, first had the idea of the carnival, it’s something she was keen to introduce,”  she added. And the Place d’Armes wasn’t the only venue for the event, with another part taking place at the Monte-Carlo Market.

Wonder and amusement

The children’s faces were all smiles. Many of them were in awe of the artists’ performances. Thomas, who was particularly interested in the jugglers, came along with his grandfather Marco. Dressed in his Pikachu costume, he said in a shy little voice while he was at the face-painting stand, “I’m glad I came.”

Children in fancy dress certainly got into the carnival spirit, like Zackari in his Spiderman costume. He waited impatiently for his friends. His mum, Rania, said, “He loves Carnival and it’s a great opportunity to dress up, he loves Spiderman.” And Zackari wasn’t the only one with spider powers at the La Condamine market – around a dozen children had the same idea.

A little further on, mini pirates, princesses and superheroes excitedly chased the giant bubbles. In front of them, Kristina, an English-speaking nanny, watched over a handful of toddlers. She loved the event. “It’s a good idea, I know it’s the first time, and it’s a success,”  she said, “I can tell the children are happy, so I’m happy too.”

Mr. Blue Sky turned up too – © Monaco Tribune

At the other end of the square, near the balloon twister, John liked the idea and thought the location was well-chosen, saying “the atmosphere of the Place d’Armes is great. It’s a bit confined with the market on though. But the wonderful weather is certainly with us, which is great,”  he added. One little cloud in an otherwise bright blue sky, he found that the activities were not best suited to his 11-year-old son. Despite being billed as a festive event for all ages, the activities seem to be more of interest to the youngest visitors.

1 day, 1 venue, 1 cause: how Monaco will celebrate International Women’s Day on 8 March

From 9 am to 8 pm, women will be in the spotlight at the Espace Léo Ferré.

The event, organised by the Comité pour la promotion et la protection des droits des femmes (Committee for the Promotion and Protection of Women’s Rights), will bring together a number of stakeholders and partners, working together for a single cause: women’s rights.

“Our aim is to show the strength of the Monegasque collective that is committed to women’s rights, hence the name ‘PowHer’, which promotes current and future actions  by stakeholders in the Principality,” said Céline Cottalorda, Inter-Ministerial Delegate for Women’s Rights.

Four themes for the day 

Education, health, sport and work. These four themes will put women front and centre, through a number of stands, conferences, round tables, a wishing tree and interactive workshops. The open-access, free event will take place over a whole day, in one venue, for a common cause. “It will be a wonderful celebration, open to everyone,” Céline said. A unique stage show will conclude the day of action.

While events on 8 March will likely make an impact, the commitment to women’s issues will also continue throughout 2024, which promises to be a year of “collective action”.

New hydrogen pontoon in Monaco Yacht Club marina

SBM Offshore inaugurated the first green hydrogen pontoon on Monday 19 February.

Take a stroll around the Monaco Yacht Club marina and you’re sure to spot a rather unusual little floating structure. Covered in solar panels, the pontoon produces green hydrogen from renewable sources. The SBM E-Racing team will be using the hydrogen it produces during the Monaco Energy Boat Challenge,

The prototype “captures solar energy”  and stores it “so that it can produce at night and convert into electricity.”  The electrical energy then powers “an electrolyser that breaks down the water molecule to produce hydrogen, and a compressor that compresses the hydrogen into bottles,” Patrick Ferri, SBM Offshore’s Project Manager explained to Monaco Info.

The innovation is part of SBM Offshore’s commitment to being “a player in the energy transition,” said Francesco Prazzo, Managing Director at SBM Offshore. “We have been operating in the traditional energy sector for several years now. We’ve started to develop products in this field [renewable energies] and so we’re very much in a research phase, looking at all the new energies that could be part of it,” he added on state television.

These high-tech inventions are in phase with the Principality’s commitment to the energy transition. “Monaco is always at the cutting edge of technology and tries to contribute to the development of yachting,” said Bernard d’Alessandri, Secretary and General Manager of the Yacht Club de Monaco.

Did you see the Prince’s Palace turn orange?

A poignant message of support for the Fondation Flavien, and a symbol of hope on International Childhood Cancer Day.

Orange was Flavien’s favourite colour. Denis Maccario fights a daily battle against paediatric cancer in Monaco as a tribute to his son, who he lost in 2014. The Prince’s Palace was a veritable orange beacon on 15 February, in support of his Foundation’s work, and as a gesture of support for all cancer and rare disease patients on this special date.

The fight continues.

AS Monaco at home to PSG

This is THE encounter of Ligue 1’s 24th match day. It’s payback time for the Red and Whites. Despite losing the away leg (5-2), AS Monaco isn’t rolling over. Just four days before the last 8 return match between Real Sociedad and Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, the Monegasques have every reason to believe they can win. A victory would move them up the league table, closing the gap on the Parisians.

So, head over to the Louis-II Stadium, to support them on Friday 1 March.

Pay a visit to the Oceanographic Museum

No need to wrap up warm… The Principality takes you down into the deep blue sea over the holidays. And you can take advantage of a great deal: for every adult ticket purchased, a child gets in free, from February 10 to March 10, 2024.

Since June 4, 2022, the “Polar Mission” exhibition takes us on an adventure to the North and South Poles. You can follow the history of the greatest explorers and see the projected images in the amazing “Immersion” room. All the while taking part in the awareness campaign to protect marine areas around the Antarctic. And, children can even leave with their polar worlds reporter’s certificate!

Continuing your visit, you can meet Greg Lecoeur, a wildlife photographer from Nice, and his photographs on the theme of “Poles, fragile worlds” until March 12, 2024. There is also the “The Prince and the Mediterranean”  exhibition, where you can imagine yourself on board Prince Rainier III’s famous boat, off the Mediterranean coast.

Other activities will be on offer during the holidays. Children can enjoy a fishes’ snack time and even discover animals from the coastline. For the more adventurous, an Escape Game and a 360-degree immersion will take you down to the depths of the Big Blue.
