Prince Albert attends Institut de France Ceremony for Pierre-André Chiappori
On Monday 14 January, Prince Albert II travelled to the Institut de France in Paris to attend a ceremony in honour of Pierre-André Chiappori at the Academy of Moral and Political Sciences. The Prince presented Mr. Chiappori with a sword, in the presence of prestigious academicians, including Jean Tirole, Nobel Prize in Economics and Denis Kessler, who delivered the reception speech.
After graduating from the prestigious Ecole Normale Supérieure, Pierre-André Chiappori’s long and brilliant career has taken him from research director at the CNRS, to teaching at the University of Paris I, the University of Chicago and at Columbia University in New York. Dr. Chiappori’s work and publications focus on micro-economy.
Mr. Chiappori is only the third Monegasque to become a member of the Institut de France, joining sculptor François-Joseph Bosio (Academy of Fine Arts in 1816) and Prince Albert I (foreign associate of the Academy of Sciences in 1909).
Prince Albert inaugurates a new home for FAR
Prince Albert II and Monseigneur Barsi inaugurated the new home for Foi Action Radiation (FAR). The FAR Catholic association left its old premises for a newly renovated, four storey building with a panoramic view. This relocation was planned for several years, because the State of Monaco needed the land for the Grand Ida real estate project. With 1,300 m2 of living space, the 184 m2 of outdoor space, the new premises include offices, an animation room for children, a kitchen and a chapel on the third floor.
