What's new

French Ligue 1 football fixtures have been announced and you can find the home games listed on maBoum. There's still some uncertainty about how many spectators will be allowed into the stadium.

Thursdays are set to be busy in both Monte Carlo and Monaco Ville over summer. Monte Carlo SBM is organizing weekly garden parties every Thursday from next week until 21 August on the lawns above Casino Square, with finger food and picnic hampers by Mada One. On the Rock traders have banded together to organize Jeudis du Rocher, the first of which is this evening. Shops are staying open late, bars are offering a happy hour, and three Carabiniers du Prince musicians are providing the entertainment.

British artist Alan Walsh has opened a new gallery at 11 rue Grimaldi. He plans to invite clients into his studio at the back of the shop to discover how he creates his work.

The Grimaldi Forum celebrates 20 years in business on 20 July. A full calendar of events is planned from September, including the opening of a new terrace in front of Espace Ravel. Next year sees an exhibition of work by Alberto Giacometti, with another dedicated to Claude Monet in 2023.

And finally, two interviews in the local media may be of interest. Christophe Bovini, president of Monaco taxis talks about how Covid-19 has affected business and what taxi owners are doing to reassure passengers. As for tourism, Guy Antognelli of the Direction du Tourism et des Congres gives his thoughts on the outlook for the Principality this year. Enjoy!
