The event will bring the Principality to the centre of the fashion universe by attracting a large number of participants and professionals, with particular attention to ethical and sustainable fashion, one of the Chambre Monégasque de la Mode’s fundamental objectives.
The Alpes Maritimes just announced new measures in the fight against the Covid-19 epidemic.
For the first time the whole coastal zone ranging from Théoule sur Mer in the West to Menton in the East is being targeted. This represents about 90% of the population of the Alpes Maritimes.
And secondly weekends are being targeted for new “lockdown” measures; specifically the next two weekends.
HelloMonaco is reviewing here all the new measures that the Prefect Bernard Gonzales has been widely reported announcing in a press conference.
Housing for Monegasques is one of the priority initiatives of the Government. That is a supreme challenge which clearly receives very high profile attention from the Sovereign on downwards.
Refuges for pets, believe it or not, is also quite a mountain to climb. Not just metaphorically! Because, it maybe that the answer to the much needed new refuge for pets who are available for adoption is Mont Agel and specifically south of the town at Peille.
Crime in Monaco decreased by 20% in 2020, according to recent Police reports. After almost an entire year of COVID-19 dominating the headlines, Police Commissioner Richard Marangoni had a bit of good news to share with the press when he presented the 2020 Police statistics at the Oceanographic Museum on 16 February.
One of Monaco’s more serious housing dilemmas took place in 2017 when the “Jardins d’Apolline” a major Monegasque housing development with hundreds of apartments, had serious damp, which penetrated throughout the complex. Many families experienced distress in the process as the problems persisted and indeed worsened. And it happened at a time when quality, affordable housing for Monegasque natives, quite separate to the private market, was one of the most transparent prime social goals of the Principality under intense debate.
After an extensive investigation at the highest level of the Princely government an accord was reached with the property developer to thoroughly renovate the complex.
Cnews announcer Guillaume Bigot was recently called out by the Princely Government for statements he said on air concerning how Monaco is handling Covid-19 patients. He later retracted his statements on air.
“I am by no means a fan of fake news, Mea culpa if I was wrong. My sources were clearly misinformed or ill-intentioned,” he said.
The Informa Group, owner of the Monaco Yacht Show, took advantage of the postponement of the 2020 Show to work closely with the yachting industry on redesigning the event.

Grimaldi Knights or “Milites”, King Arthur and his Round Table and Medieval knights jousting – this has become a serious professional sport dear to Monaco. Royal Courts and the chivalry that surrounds it – that spirit is still very much alive and well in The Principality. It has been kindled by the expanding “Grimaldi Milites” club, started in 2017 that has since forged a great reputation, and nowadays has developed the sport to such a level that they have become the 22nd sports section of ASM in the Principality.
