#hello_monaco weekend: what to do on April 9th and April 10th
This weekend all eyes will be fixed to the clay courts of the Monte-Carlo Country Club where the 115th edition of the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters starts on Saturday.
The Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters, at its 115th edition starts this weekend at the glamorous Monte-Carlo Country Club in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin district. After the cancellation of the 2020 edition due to pandemic and the unusual 2021 closed-door tournament that was followed, however, by 79 million people through various Media, there was the need for a change. This year’s tournament always part of the ATP Masters 1000 global tour and organized by the Société Monégasque pour l’Exploitation du Tournoi de Tennis (S.M.E.T.T.), will see the reborn of a certain normality.
The Rolex Monte Carlo Masters is one of the oldest tournaments in world tennis. Previously known as the “Monte Carlo Tennis Championship”, the famous competition on clay was created in 1897. It is now part of the Masters 1000, a category of events organised by the ATP that includes nine tournaments staged annually in Europe, North America and Asia.

As always there are a few exhibitions open in Monaco. To begin with there is “Tremors, Recent Acquisitions by the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco”, an exhibition presenting for the first time a selection of artworks acquired by the NMNM between 2010 and 2021, created by 18 artists of 10 different nationalities from Thursday 25 November 2021 to Sunday 15 May 2022, in Nouveau Musée National de Monaco – Villa Paloma.
Conceived by Célia Bernasconi, Exhibition Curator, Chief Curator at the NMNM, the exhibition brings together contemporary works by seventeen living artists, including nine women, of twelve different nationalities. All of them have in common that they respond to the definition of the thought of trembling which, in the words of the poet Édouard Glissant, “unites us in absolute diversity, in a whirlwind of encounters”.
Video installations, sculptures, paintings, photographs, translate the tremors of the world.
Exhibition of documents from the Regional Media Library of Monaco on the theme of sports under Albert I – “The beautiful sporting era: influence and innovations under the reign of Albert I” in Salle d’Exposition of Quai Antoine I finishes this weekend.
