The Monaco government has visited the Jardin Exotique construction site at the entrance to the Principality.
On Friday 10th May, Minister of Equipment, Environment and Urbanism Marie-Pierre Gramaglia, together with the Director of Public Works Jean-Luc Nguyen, visited the site of the operation ‘Entrance of the city’ at Boulevard Jardin Exotique.
Accompanied by the FPMC / ENGECO operators, Mrs. Gramaglia noted the progress of the private-public operation consisting of 50 residential housing units and a 1,820-space public car park including dozens of places for coaches, a logistics platform for the processing of up to 5,000 small parcels per day, as well as around 5,000 m² of office space.
The work is expected to be completed in the first half of 2023.
A second person has died from Covid-19 in Monaco. Meanwhile, the Principality’s Minister of State has fully recovered from the virus.
Now more than ever, health is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. On 7th April, we have an opportunity to thank the nurses and midwives of the Principality during World Health Day 2020.
Monaco’s support workers caring for the most vulnerable in the community are making heroic efforts to maintain vital ties to the elderly and disabled, whilst trying to remain safe themselves during the crisis.
Since confinement began on 18th March, the Monaco police force has made 11,000 traffic checks on drivers entering the Principality.
Fashion Designer Alessandra Vicedomini is Monaco Life's fashion contributor, keeping readers up to date on all things couture.[ihc-hide-content ihc_mb_type="show" ihc_mb_who="2" ihc_mb_template="1" ] Walking around Paris, I can’t help but notice that people wear more black and experiment very little, despite the fact Fashion Week gathers eccentric styles and new trends, along with provocative figures walking around the Champs Elysées and St Honoré. I worked all day with a New York client on the new collection in a very nice boutique hotel at place de l’Opera Edouard Vii, which I highly recommend. It is brand new and beautifully decorated, with haute couture pictures hanging all over the place. Afterwards, I took my NY client for dinner at Costes, "the" establishment with its incredible decor, magical atmosphere, and glamorously dressed waitresses with their short draped tunics and blazer-dress style with see-through lace bras pinned with Swarovski brooches and – rigorously - cow-boy boots. Their uber-contemporary look contrasts the classic Parisian style: a woman who is perpetually thin, young, artfully disheveled-yet-bougie, donning a Breton top and a vintage Chanel bag and who doesn't brush her hair. Her only thing is mat red lipstick. BTW... Chanel’s windows in monocrome sequins were outstanding! [/ihc-hide-content]
