This weekend we’ll see the final of the Jumping International de Monte-Carlo that is taking place from Thursday 1 to Saturday 3 July 2021 in Port de Monaco.

Nestled at the foot of the Prince’s palatial ramparts, the 15th edition of the Jumping International of Monte-Carlo promises exceptional moments of sporting emotion. The Jumping International of Monte-Carlo, one of the main trials in the Longines Global Champions Tour since its creation in 2006, is a horse jumping event unlike any other — taking place on the waterfront beneath the celebrated Rocher des Princes de Monaco. The setting up of an entire equestrian event in the middle of a busy harbour is a formidable challenge. The waterfront is transformed into a luxurious equine venue, requiring the hauling in of vast quantities of specialised sand for the competition surface and the transformation of the dock into elegant stabling.

Charlotte Casiraghi as its patron, the competition brings together professional and amateur riders from around the world in a highly competitive yet convivial event that has the entire audience on its feet.

Each Grand Prix is endowed with a purse of € 300,000, of which the winner receives € 100,000. The tour’s eighteen best riders will share a purse of one million euros.

The Monaco Streaming Film Festival

The first of its kind, Monaco Streaming Film Festival (MCSFF) will take its first steps on the red carpet and stream everything on its agenda worldwide.

Launching July 3-6 at the Grimaldi Forum (preceding the Cannes Film Festival 6-17 July), with Netflix Founding VP Mitch Lowe onboard as festival Co-Founder, and in conjunction with major Hollywood streaming studios, The Princess Grace Foundation and GEMA Foundation, this innovative hybrid “festival-meets-summit” experience celebrates the streaming industry’s content, makers, creators and talent, and leverages streaming technology to power the festival.

Industry leaders and talent will descend on the glamorous principality of Monaco, the festival’s homebase, to partake in four dynamic days of premieres, an awards night, VIP receptions, a marketplace, and a conference featuring talks and Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak as keynote speaker.

Technologically-driven, global in scale, MCSFF extends beyond Monaco’s borders, opening its doors to a global audience via MCSFF’s live streaming platform, which will also feature virtual-only content and panels with personalities participating remotely.

MCSFF invites you to the Gala Awards Dinner, at the Grimaldi Forum and virtually, to recognize the best in the streaming industry and to celebrate key film, media and technology innovators and personalities.

Exhibition "Alberto Giacometti. A retrospective. The real marvelous "

In summer 2021, the Grimaldi Forum will present for the first time in Monaco a major retrospective of the work of sculptor and painter Alberto Giacometti, the most important of recent years.

Organized in association with the Giacometti Foundation this exhibition will focus on all the periods of the artist and all the media which he has used.

It will offer a comprehensive view of Alberto Giacometti’s creations, from early works to the surrealist period, from the return to figuration to the invention of post-war icons.

Bringing together over 230 works, including masterpieces and accompanied by photographs and films, this retrospective will offer visitors wonderful discoveries as part of a journey orchestrated by curator Émilie Bouvard, scientific director and collections of the Foundation Giacometti.
