Makeover of Casino Square to dramatically change the look of Monte Carlo

BRICKLIVE returns to Grimaldi Forum Monaco

BRICKLIVE returns to Grimaldi Forum Monaco

By Cassandra Tanti - November 29, 2019

Felipe Massa has unveiled a full-size reproduction of a Venturi-Formula E car at the launch of the 2nd edition of BRICKLIVE Monaco. The car will be on display throughout the event which runs from 21st December to 5th January and features over two million bricks spread over 4,000 m2. 

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Monaco event if there wasn’t some reference to saving the ocean, so there is also an educational exhibition on the theme of the ocean as well as many other surprises. 

“I thoroughly enjoy coming home to Monaco to showcase the best features of the BRICKLIVE brand,” said David Ciclitira, founder of BRICKLIVE and Chairman of Live Company Group. “The first BRICKLIVE Show in 2018 was a resounding success with 11,000 visitors across 15 days, delivering an interactive educational, creative and fun environment for families and children to enjoy”.

This year, about 10 spaces will be dedicated to construction and games of all kinds, both manual and electronic, and feature Duplo, BRICKLIVE Force, Ninja tournament temples, Friends and Architecture zones.

The Race Ramp workshop will allow children to engage in car racing after they have built their cars and it is in this space that Felipe Massa’s Formula E Venturi car will be on exhibition, in real size – five metres long by 1.80 metres wide and one meter high. It was built entirely by a team of professional builders and weighs just over one tonne.

The Map Build area, which reproduces the map of Monaco, will offer everyone the opportunity to redevelop the Principality by constructing buildings, houses, cars and boats. Young and old will be able to express themselves on the Graffiti Wall, while children can dive into a briquette pool to enjoy their favourite construction game.

Dance, make-up and many other surprises and competitions will also be on offer during the event.

Meanwhile, thanks to the cooperation of Fairmont Monte Carlo, ‘Atelier Petits Chefs’ will be displayed on site for children to prepare delicious biscuits, while several selfie areas will help immortalise the visit.

An open fan-zone will be dedicated to amateur block builders who have until 15th December to apply to have their buildings exhibited in this space. People can send a photo of their best work to the Grimaldi Forum: bricklive@grimaldiforum.com.

This year, the BRICKLIVE Show will include BRICKLIVE Ocean, showcasing 30 statues to educate children and families about the incredible diversity of life in the earth’s oceans, and about the major environmental issues that threaten their existence. The theme of this exhibition fits in with Monaco’s mission, which focuses on marine protection and conservation.

Tickets are available www.bricklivemonaco.com, www.grimaldiforum.com
