In collaboration with the Marine World Discovery Centre, Monaco’s Environment Department is organising a pop-up library on Larvotto Beach on Tuesday, July 25 and Monday, August 7, between 4 pm and 7 pm.
The Bibliomer, an itinerant and playful library, travels all summer along the beaches of the coast. Last year, it enabled young readers to discover the riches of the Mediterranean Sea, especially the coastal zone. Smaller children were particularly fascinated.
This summer the focus is on entertainment. Facilitators will offer workshops on fishing, whale watching and waste management, with booklets, books and prizes to be won. Further information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The architecturally exciting new home of the International University of Monaco has been officially inaugurated by H.S.H. Prince Albert II and National Council President Stéphane Valeri.
A new photo book paying tribute to the 126 people who work behind the scenes at the Prince’s Palace and his private home, Roc Agel, has been released.
Prince Albert has joined a gathering of the entire Red Cross Movement in Geneva for a conference under the theme: ‘Acting today to shape the world of tomorrow’.
Monaco now has four new Ambassadors from Belarus, Malayia, Mali and the European Union.
Two thieves from Marseille have been sentenced to one year in jail for robbing a man at the BNP cash machine on Boulevard Albert 1er on New Year’s Eve last year. One of the miscreants watched the code being entered while the second grabbed the card from the elderly victim, who alerted a security guard at the Christmas Fair in the port. The two men were soon arrested, Monaco’s Criminal Court was told.The thieves had booked into one of the Principality’s top hotels for the night, apparently in the hope of executing a number of robberies during the New Year celebrations. One of the suspects had 15 convictions in France since 1998, while his companion had twenty. They were not in court last week to hear the sentences, a fact that was regretted by the prosecutor, Alexia Brianti. Counsel for the defence argued in vain that the theft of the bankcard was simply a case of too much alcohol. Arrest warrants for the two were issued.
