The official inauguration of a work by Monaco artist Anthony Alberti – aka Mr OneTeas – took place at Princess Grace Hospital on Monday, July 24, as well as a historical photographic retrospective of the hospital.

In the presence of the Ministers of Public Works, the Environment and Urban Development, Marie-Pierre Gramaglia, and of Health and Social Affairs, Didier Gamerdinger, the Assistant Director of the institution, Benoite de Sevelinges, demonstrated the 31 photographs that succeed in showing a hospital that has not ceased to evolve over time, since the first foundations were started in 1898.

Monaco artist Anthony Alberti has also decorated the outside of the elevator shaft that connects avenue Pasteur to the hospital with 585 portraits of people linked to the current life of the hospital – staff, workers, and neighbours.

The Prince’s government wanted to create a unifying artistic work with a focus on those who “live” the project on a daily basis. The work is displayed on all three visible sides of the elevator.
