The holidays are drawing to a close and life comes alive in Monaco. And here is a guide for your weekend to navigate the events in Monaco.
This week Monaco Classic Week – La Belle Classe (Traditional yachting) organized by the Yacht Club de Monaco takes place in the Bay of Monaco.

Echoing the first motor boat gatherings in 1904, this event is the only one to bring together the most beautiful traditional sailing ships, with vintage motor yachts and old motor boats, to which has been added a fleet of 12 ′ Dinghies for four of the last editions.

This year, the New National Museum of Monaco – Villa Paloma exhibits works by Shimabuku gathered in the exhibition entitled The 165-meter mermaid and other stories.
Like an epic poem, the exhibition The 165-meter mermaid and other stories recounts the adventures of the artist Shimabuku around the world, from his native Japan to the Principality of Monaco, including Brazil, Australia and many other countries.
The artist’s texts form the common thread of a journey that brings together more than 20 installations, films, sculptures and photographs produced over the past 30 years.
While visiting Fukuoka, Shimabuku discovered the legend and relics of a mermaid whose body was 165 meters long and decided to make this story their own and expand it by purchasing a 165 meter long rope. also. Going around the world, this rope brings him closer to the woman-fish and becomes a vector connecting fiction to reality, the past to the present and Japan to the different countries where the work is presented. Acquired by the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco in 2018, the installation Je voyage avec Sirène de 165 meters (1998-in progress) constitutes the starting point of the exhibition and is enriched by the presence of objects produced in Monaco by various artisans invited to turn to make this story a full-fledged work.
Of course, there are other interesting events happening in Monaco. If you want to know more about the exhibitions open in Monaco these days, visit our Calendar.
