Monaco Town Hall is about to be renovated extensively in order to restore its former splendour and offer better facilities to the thousands of people who visit the historic site each year.

The last week of October will mark the start of the work, which will be divided into different phases and last until spring 2018.

The redevelopment project, initiated in 2015, has a dual objective: to create a dynamic and homogeneous space in order to give a “monumental” visual dimension while respecting the fact that the building has not undergone any renovation work since the Nineties.

Bathed in light and harmoniously symmetrical, the main hall will be more spacious and functional. Elegant and soft, the luminous shades selected for the wall coverings will be enhanced by the frosted Calacatta marble floor. On the ceiling, the gilding will be preserved and careful plaster stucco on the wall will conserve the historic building’s patrimonial feel.

Throughout the duration of the work, the reception will remain open to the public and the provision of communal services will be maintained. From mid-January until the end of the work, the Civil-Nationality service will be transferred to the Council Chamber with direct access from outside. During this period, the meetings of the Communal Council will be held in the Wedding Hall. In addition, marriages will continue to be celebrated normally in the Town Hall.
