Several Monaco entities have come together to organise a physical space where visitors can ask questions and understand how to be better connected In this digital age.

On Friday, July 7, Minister of State Pierre Dartout welcomed HSH Prince Albert, Government ministers and other important figures in the Principality to see for themselves how this exciting initiative works.

Mr Dartout said that over the past few years digital change has become more everyday in its application and now involves us all on a regular basis. The Digital House at the Jardins d’Apolinne, close to Starbucks, will help more people to use digital tools.

Martin Péronnet, director of Monaco Telecom, said that more than 80 percent of calls it receives are about using the new technology.

Marjorie Crovetto, representing Mayor Georges Marsan, said that the Monaco Town Hall was proud to be associated with the initiative.

The staff of the Digital House are happy to answer visitors’ queries in either French or English, and it’s completely free of charge.

Opening hours are from 10:00 until 18:30 from Tuesday through Friday and from 10:00 until 14:30 on Saturday.
