The architecturally exciting new home of the International University of Monaco has been officially inaugurated by H.S.H. Prince Albert II and National Council President Stéphane Valeri.
A new photo book paying tribute to the 126 people who work behind the scenes at the Prince’s Palace and his private home, Roc Agel, has been released.
Prince Albert has joined a gathering of the entire Red Cross Movement in Geneva for a conference under the theme: ‘Acting today to shape the world of tomorrow’.
Monaco now has four new Ambassadors from Belarus, Malayia, Mali and the European Union.
The last strike in the Principality, and the first “interprofessional” collective strike since 2012, was on June 16, 2016, when the USM mobilised Monaco’s trade unions with a call to action from employees and retirees.[caption id="attachment_9069" align="alignleft" width="250"] Union des syndicats de Monaco (USM) General Secretary Christophe Glasser[/caption]
“Those taking to the streets are not anti-Monaco nor or anti-constitutional,” USM’s General Secretary, Christophe Glasser, told Monaco Life in June. “Quite the contrary. It’s a question of dignity and social justice.”According to Glasser, who has worked at USM for seven years, USM is a foundation that represents 39 professional unions in the Principality, from transport and telecoms to hotels and restaurants to bank managers and water and electricity. Monaco’s constitution provides the right to strike and workers do not have to give advance notice to their employers, but, as in France, they do not get paid when they are on strike.
The New National Museum of Monaco (NMNM) has been hosting an exhibition of photographs by Kasper Akhøj, Welcome (To The Teknival), dedicated to Villa E-1027 in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, since early summer at Villa Sauber.
The exhibition has now been enriched with new photographs, taken in July of this year by Akhøj, which ends a work begun in 2008. The public can now admire 63 shots that are an echo to the portfolio made by the architect Eileen Gray during the construction of the iconic villa E-1027, the summer hideaway house designed by Eileen Gray for Jean Badovici between 1926 and 1929.
Kasper Akhøj also presents a new film entitled C2RMF75602, produced by the NMNM, in the video room of the Villa Sauber, recounting the restoration of a 16th-century painting entitled Portrait de Femme, attributed to Titian.
This film, shot in 16 mm, creates magnificent links to Welcome (To The Teknival), both of which pose many questions inherent in the conservation and restoration of heritage sites such as the Eileen Gray villa.
The Welcome (To The Teknival) exhibition runs until January 8, 2018. Villa Sauber is open daily from 10 to 6 pm; admission is €6 or free on Sundays.
