For those who were planning to visit the exhibition devoted to Eugène Frey in the New National Museum of Monaco at Paloma, fortunately it is reopening again. It was suddenly closed in mid-March after only few days of showing – just as the quarantine closed everything. 

Frey was the inventor of unique lighting systems and opera decorations in the early twentieth century. Included in the exhibition is a contemporary vision created by the Portuguese artist João Maria Gusmão.

Exhibition "Mystery of Love" by Natalija Vincic

Also check out the “Mystery of Love”, an exhibition by the artist Natalija Vincic that is open till Thursday 1 October 2020, Le Quai Des Artistes.

Also the 1st International Contemporary Art Fair art3f takes place this week. Don’t miss the first major cultural event since the quarantine! 3 days of art celebration are waiting for you!

And don’t forget about shopping! We are hesitantly venturing into the shops. Sanitizers, masks and social distancing are the new shopping reality. But nothing lasts forever. HelloMonaco is happy to take you on a shopping tour for a new trendy wardrobe.

A futuristic building is located in the very heart of Liguria, overlooking the French Riviera. The Mall Sanremo is a new project by The Mall Luxury Outlets opened in June 2019.

Imbibed in the local sea landscape, the minimalistic boutiques share a sharp-angled mirrored roof and a central staircase zigzagging through the most famous international high fashion brands. Now that the lockdown is lifted, the best fashion designers are available again with their exclusive collections at an interesting price. The Mall Sanremo is the luxury shopping destination that allows its visitors to live an experience that goes beyond the classic shopping: a unique blend of fashion, environment and hospitality. This is the key of success for this renowned Italian reality: Elegance and Exclusivity in a place where visitors literally fall in love. A special and unique location that gives you the chance to experience the world of fashion, luxury and beauty while counting on special benefits without compromising on quality.
