Most of you probably have already made plans for the weekend, but if you are running behind and still hesitating what to do, here are our suggestions.
In the center of this weekend in Monaco is no doubt the Rose Ball with a Bollywood theme this year, held in aid of the Princess Grace Foundation on Saturday 25 March 2023, at 8 pm, in Salle des Etoiles.
The Rose Ball was created by Princess Grace of Monaco in 1954. It is organised every year in March by the Monte-Carlo SBM Group in the prestigious Salle des Etoiles of the Sporting Monte-Carlo.
This exceptional event brings together the elite and international high society for the first important social event of the year. For just one evening, it bathes the Principality in splendour and lights, plunging it in an ambience of radiance and festivity.
Currently presided by H.S.H. the Sovereign Prince Albert II and H.R.H. Princess Caroline of Hanover, the Rose Ball is a symbol of glamour that maintains the fascinating Monte-Carlo legend that it has helped create. The aura is such that it attracts many people who wish to be part of the dream and enchantment of Monaco.
During this edition of the Monaco Ocean Week, from 20th to 26th March 2023, local and international experts, the scientific community, the voluntary sector, and public authorities once again united in the Principality of Monaco. When the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation was created in June 2006, Monaco immediately adopted solid commitments with respect to the protection of the environment. The Foundation also created the Monaco Blue Initiative (MBI) in 2010: a thinktank where members focus on current and future global ocean management and conservation issues. The MBI is held every year in the framework of Monaco Ocean Week, a week of debate, analysis and awareness-raising to better understand the challenges facing our future Ocean.
The lecture: “Cerebral Man” is organized on Saturday 25 March 2023, at 2 pm, in the Grimaldi Forum Monaco.
This lecture takes place every two years on the theme of the human brain. The organ is the literal nerve-centre of all our behaviour, our actions, our emotions, but also sadly many diseases. The theme of the 2023 edition will focus on innovations in the field of neuro-technology, under the title “Fiction or Reality”, looking at how the advances will impact the lives of people with diseases in the very near future. The programme of the congress is determined by the scientific panel of the FESN, chaired by Prof Pierre Magistretti, and organised with the support of Magnoglia, a Monegasque company that looks to develop innovative pharmaceutical products in the field.
