It’s Friday evening and HelloMonaco is as always ready to show you our version of a perfect weekend in Monaco.
You should begin with the 32nd Monaco Yacht Show: the world’s leading luxury yachting show held this week in Port Hercule de Monaco.
In September, the yachting industry turns its focus exclusively on the Monaco Yacht Show where forty or so new launches are annually unveiled in a worldwide debut. Hundreds of exhibiting companies and partners participate in the growing success of the MYS. Monaco provides the ultimate showcase for industry influencers from the most reputable superyacht builders, award winning yacht designers, luxury suppliers, influential brokerage houses to the most sought-after water toys, prestige cars, helicopter and private jet manufacturers. From 27 to 30 of September, more exclusive superyachts built by the world’s largest shipyards will be exhibited in Port Hercule. Once again this year, the MYS will continue its three-year development programme “Seducation,” with 2023 marking the consolidation of the first cycle. The Monaco Yacht Show announced the return of the Sustainability Hub for its second edition in 2023. This dedicated exhibition area will once again showcase companies specializing in sustainable technologies aimed at reducing the environmental impact of superyachts.
After the success of the first two editions, the Monte-Carlo Star Chef Culinary Festival (“Festival des Etoilés Monte-Carlo”) returns in 2023!
This year’s program will begin in September, with new and original joint activities! Discover the guests of the star chefs of the Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer and taste unique and unforgettable gastronomic dishes.
The event will begin with the talented Chef of the restaurant Odette, who holds three Michelin stars, as well as the chef of the Claudine restaurant, which has a Michelin star in Hong Kong. They will work together to offer an exceptional menu on September 29 and 30 at the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort on Las Brisas Terrace, always with the two-star chef Marcel Ravin.
Jean-Pierre Debernardi presents Monaco d’Autrefois, a work printed in 1,500 copies and financed by Sogeda. It brings together 35 photos taken in the Principality by his photographer grandfather, Jean, almost a century ago. The book will be on sale during an exhibition of these same images, from September 30 to October 6, at the Espace Léo Ferré. Back to the past.
The book will be on sale for 12 euros – as well as the poster in 30x40cm format – as part of the eponymous exhibition which will be held from September 30 to October 6 at the Espace Léo Ferré. It will then settle for almost six months at the Museum of Prehistoric Anthropology in Monaco.
Football fans should remember about the French Ligue 1 Football Championship: AS Monaco – FC Metz meeting on Sunday 22 October 2023, Stade Louis II.
Music lovers can enjoy the Symphonic concert of the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Nathalie Stutzmann, with Matthias Goerne, baritone will be held on Sunday 1 October 2023, at 6 pm, in Auditorium Rainier III. On the program music by Prokofiev, Mahler, and Tchaikovsky.
After the “The Prince at home” a new temporary exhibition “Pablo Picasso and Antiquity” started at the Palais Princier de Monaco.
Organized in the Palais Princier de Monaco, alongside the recently restored 16th-century frescoes, the exhibition focuses on a selection from the collection of the Fundación Almine y Bernard Ruiz-Picasso (FABA), as well as a painting from the Nahmad Collection. “Pablo Picasso et l’Antiquité” provides a stage for Picasso’s thoughts on the survival, legibility and malleability of ancient artifacts, beyond the jolts of history and the degradation of objects.
The exhibition explores themes of ruin and decline as well as of endurance and renewal in relation to Picasso’s distinctive takes on Classicism in a variety of mediums from the post-WWI period to the 1950s. In so doing, it illuminates the radical ways in which the artist reimagined the heritage of the Greco-Roman world through subjects, style, and materials as he contradicted the dogmatism and idealism of the academic tradition.
The exhibition is part of the international collaboration Picasso Celebration 1973-2023 on occasion of the 50th anniversary of Pablo Picasso’s death.
