Bucharest City Hall has continued work on the Prince Rainier III of Monaco monument in the capital’s Circului Park. The monument comprises a statue of the Prince and seven bronze figurative elements representing life-size circus acts, reflecting Prince Rainier’s enthusiasm for the show.
Prince Rainier created the Monte-Carlo International Circus Festival, an event the Bucharest Globus Circus has attended several times, local media reported.
The ensemble was designed by sculptor Ionel Stoicescu, and has cost €2.06 million. Work on the monument should finish by September 15 and will be set up in a grass-covered area, with zero impact on existing trees, the City Hall said.
Local community group Lacul Tei Civic Initiative Group had written in a Facebook post that the monument could destroy the turf in the area and that they suspect it of being illegal. A protest against the monument was held in Circului Park during the evening of August 22.
