We hope you’re enjoying this nice Spring weekend. And in the meantime we created an update of most interesting pieces of news from the past week here for you.
Monaco’s Ribolzi Gallery is currently hosting a Post-War Masters exhibition, which gathers works of art and rare pieces dating from the post-war period created by a dozen famous artists.
Adriano Ribolzi, owner of the Ribolzi Gallery and his team assembled a group of the most important artists from the Post-War epoque, an art period which has recently regained popularity. The exhibition showcases mostly Italian artists as well as a few foreign artists who created work with the same themes as the Italian artists did at the time.
Only his fourth Grand Prix in Formula 1, and Monegasque Charles LeClerc at 20 years old is racking up valuable points. Thirteenth place on the starting grid and a sixth place finish. A fantastic result.
Baku is a track on which Charles excels. The circuit has a superb blend of challenging curves that weave their way through Baku’s attractive Old Town and high-velocity bursts reminiscent of Monza’s long straights. A capricious wind that is constantly changing direction, and town walls that are unforgiving and you have a recipe for a thriller of a Grand Prix. Last year Charles was brilliant racing there in Formula 2 where he won the Baku Feature Race and was second in the Sprint.
After 10 years of hard work and a successful test launch in March, a world first took place at the Place du Palais: the full-scale launch of an environmentally friendly hot air balloon.

The flight took place in favourable conditions and concluded, 3 hours later, landing successfully near the Italian municipality of Saluces (Piedmont).

Brazilian artist Alfredo Volpi’s exhibition marks an important milestone at the New National Museum of Monaco. A Brazilian artist has never been shown in Europe and the event was made possible thanks to the links that the NMNM has created with international institutions and private collectors.
A Sovereign Ordinance* was published in the Journal de Monaco on 20 April 2018 regulating four zones to secure the maritime area around the offshore Anse du Portierseafront extension project…
“Mechanical Garden” – just the juxtaposition of the two words together startles. It’s almost an oxymoron, certainly a challenge to the senses. At the New National Museum of Monaco NMNM in Villa Sauber that is what they do so well – set our senses alight; play with the possibilities within the virtually impossible.
