fresco marathon

From the water cycle and the world’s oceans to the compost loop, five environmental themes have been chosen for the artworks that will be painted by participants at the Fresco Marathon event organised by the Mairie de Monaco in early April. 

Between 3pm and 6pm on Saturday 6th April, the A Casa d’i Soci – La Maison des Associations venue on Promenade Honoré II will be hosting budding artists and environmentalists at a Fresco Marathon initiative – the first of its kind in Monaco – put on by the Mairie.  

The Mairie has long been committed to the Principality’s environmental code, which is enshrined in law and vows to “sustainably manage and protect the environment against all forms of pollution, contribute to climate change mitigation efforts and an energy transition, as well other environmental and health related purposes”. 

This dedication to the cause will be given a creative spin at the upcoming event, which will invite locals aged 10 to 100 to join in with the painting of five separate frescoes.  

The goal of the painting project is to help people understand “the mechanics, scale and complexity of the challenges posed by climate change in order to collectively explore possible solutions”.

Themes include: the compost loop, with a focus on waste reduction; the oceans and their ecosystems; the water cycle; the climate; and the circular economy.  

The event is free to attend, but spaces are limited so the team at the Mairie is asking interested parties to register ahead of time via
