Monaco’s colourful installations on sale to support Ukraine

Nearly a hundred beautifully crafted Roses des Vents pinwheels will be up for grabs from the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer, with proceeds going to Monaco Red Cross’s Ukrainian relief efforts.

Ma Vie en Rose Monte-Carlo is one of the highlights of the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer’s (SBM) event schedule this year, and it is made up of a myriad of pop-up and temporary installations around the resort that are on display to delight guests and reawaken senses to the beauty and pleasures of spring in the Principality.

To keep the spirit of the occasion going long past the blooms of spring are past, SBM is offering guests a chance to take a piece of the event home with them, whilst contributing to a worthy cause.

Close to a hundred Roses des Vents pinwheels are scattered throughout the Principality, created by Eva Dmitrenko and Céline Pagés from the Pavillion Bosio Art School, as a tribute to joie de vivre, movement, and fun. They are for sale from now until 8th May.

Every Roses des Vents is different in size and detail, making each unique and exclusive. Pink is of course the primary colour, but vibrant shades of yellow, orange and red are also on the block.

The ones up for sale are located in the gardens of the Place du Casino to, and buyers can select as many of them as they’d like.

Prices range from €100 to €1,000, with smaller posies available for pick up from the Salle des Palmiers on 10th May. Larger pieces can be delivered for an extra fee.

Proceeds from the sale will go directly to support the people of Ukraine through the Monaco Red Cross’s programmes. For more information, to view online of to buy a Roses des Vents pinwheel, visit the website at
