Two new cases of Covid-19 on 5 July brings total in Monaco to 108: 8 home monitored, 95 cured, 1 resident death

Battle of the Buildings decided

Battle of the Buildings decided

By Stephanie Horsman - May 4, 2020

On Friday night, the Battle of the Buildings came down to two Monegasque neighbourhoods vying for the top spot and a shot at winning 600 pizzas for their residents.

The past few weeks have seen the 8pm shout out to the front-liners of the Principality go from a polite gesture of solidarity to an all-out competition between Monaco’s quartiers. The Battle of the Buildings, instigated by the government-run Monaco Info channel, took off like a shot and saw the residents of lockdown-weary Monaco districts zealously turning up on their designated night to make the almightiest rackets possible.

This simple nightly act cemented friendships and forged bonds, as well as alerting those working to keep the population safe know that they were and are appreciated.

Friday night’s contest hinged to two neighbourhoods, La Condamine and Fontvieille. In the end, judges were evenly split four to four. This left no clear-cut winner, but a spirit of unity and friendship remained. That’s all fine and good, but someone had to win.

Enter Stan Perromat, co-founder of Privatam, a wealth management company based in the Principality, and a partner in the Battle of the Buildings, who was asked to step in and make the final call. He happily awarded the victory to both neighbourhoods live on Monaco Info.

The winning districts received a grand total of 600 pizzas on Saturday night, some delivered by drone, others the more traditional way, with a portion also fittingly going to the Princess Grace Hospital staff.
