Sunday 11

9th Ladies Vintage Car Rally

“Steampunk Explorer” attire is the dress code this year (not compulsory) for a day of adventure and exploration for this annual Sunday classic car journey around the French Riviera.

As every year the details of the day are strictly secret and will be revealed during the breakfast on the day of departure.

As always, the meeting up point is at Place du Casino at 08:30. The breakfast, delicious lunch and afternoon tea & coffee accompanied by generous Tombola plus champagne cocktails and awards ceremony at the end of the day are all guaranteed fun. As well as lots of fun, the event is a chance to drive exceptional cars, meet new friends and catch-up with old ones.

All proceeds from the Rally are donated to Child CARE Monaco’s school projects. Child CARE Monaco celebrated its 10-year anniversary in March and has grown from providing quality education for girls in India to cooperating in charity projects in South Africa and South America as well.

The gift of education is an everlasting legacy. In an Interview with NEWS.MC, the founder of Child CARE Monaco Martine Ackermann also said that changing the world starts within ourselves. “Be kind to yourself. Sleep well, eat well and spread kindness to others. It is really up to us to be happy. And happy people make the world a better place.”

Come along as the ladies start out and take in the special atmosphere.


The Southern Ocean arrives at the Oceanographic Museum

Two new exhibitions to discover until September 26, 2022, in partnership with the French Southern and Antarctic Lands (TAAF).
The year 2022 marks the 250th anniversary of the discovery, a few weeks apart, of the Crozet and Kerguelen archipelagos by France. On this occasion, and as part of the polar program led by the Oceanographic Institute, two new temporary exhibitions are simultaneously presented by the TAAF at the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco from July 26 to September 26: Voyage en terres australes – Crozet et Kerguelen 1772 – 2002 and De Dumont d’Urville at DDU: the French in Antarctica..

About forty panels, combining maps, archival documents, historical and contemporary photographs, occupy the Conference Room of the Oceanographic Museum. Visitors embark on a journey to the heart of the historical and natural heritage of the French Southern and Antarctic Lands, and their contemporary issues.

The Oceanographic Museum is open every day from 10:00 to 19:00.

Exhibition – “Cinémato !”

An exhibition about Albert I of Monaco, pioneer of sound and image, with loans from the Palace Archives, the Oceanographic Institute, and Phono Museum Paris, organised by the Audiovisual Institute of Monaco. Until December 30, from Monday to Friday, from 10 to 17:30. (17:00 on Fridays), at the Institut Audiovisuel de Monaco.

Newton, Riviera

The title of the exhibition clearly circumscribes a geography, that of the Côte-d’Azur to Bordighera, in Italy, that Helmut Newton photographed from the 1960s until his death in the early 2000s. “A Riviera” is thus a pretext to explore the work of a major photographer of the 20th century in a different way, through now famous images, like others rarely presented to the public.
At Villa Sauber until 13.11.2022. Discover more at the Nuveau Musée national de Monaco website.

Until Saturday 31 December 2022 at the Musée d’Anthropologie Préhistorique.

“Christian Bérard, Excentrique Bébé”

The Nouveau Musée National de Monaco is presenting an exhibition devoted to the artist Christian Bérard (1902–1949). The exhibition is running until October 16, 2022 at Villa Paloma.

Featuring interior views and Mediterranean landscapes, the show makes reference to the places associated with Bérard’s many stays in the south: these include Monte Carlo, where he produced his first designs for the Ballets Russes in 1932, Tamaris, where he had his studio during the summer period, the Lily Pastré estate in Marseille, and the villa belonging to Charles and Marie-Laure de Noailles in Hyères. Over 300 paintings, drawings, photographs and interior decorations trace Christian Bérard’s encounters and collaborations with the great creators of the time, among whom Jean Cocteau, Louis Jouvet, Christian Dior and Gabrielle Chanel.
