shower-1027904_1920 The hot water supply at the Jardins d’Apolline building in the Condamine will be cut during the night of Thursday, October 19, and Friday, October 20, from 10 pm until 6 am. Residents have been warned that following the reconnection of the supply, taps should be run until any discolouration disappears. Work on pipes on the 10th floor of B Block will involve loud noises that will last a few minutes. The office responsible for the work has apologised to residents for inconvenience caused by the work, which is necessary in order to rectify serious ongoing problems with pipes in the buildings, which largely house Monegasque families.

Several streets will undergo roadworks from Sunday, October 22, until Friday, October 27, in rotation. The roads affected are avenue de la Costa, avenue de l'Annonciade, avenue de la Madone, rue Louis Aureglia, lacets St Léon and rue du Ténao. To minimise the impact on traffic, this work will take place at night, usually from 7 pm to 6 am, starting with Avenue de la Costa. The operation involves the removal of the top five centimetres of road surface and the laying of new tarmac. In some cases, work will involve the closure of neighbouring streets. Following the resurfacing of avenue de la Costa, work will take place on avenue de l'Annonciade for two nights, followed by avenue de la Madone. Parking will also be prohibited while the work is underway. Avenue de Grande Bretagne will be closed, except to residents, for two nights. The last street to be resurfaced will be rue du Ténao, from Wednesday, October 25, to Thursday, October 26.

Ince & Co has announced the appointment of Ian Fisher as a shipping and international trade partner in its Monaco office. Having opened an office in the Gildo Pastor Center in the summer of 2011, Ince & Co provides English legal advice, with an emphasis on shipping, yachting, offshore energy, international trade and aviation. Mr Fisher was previously a partner in the Singapore office of the Vietnamese law firm YKVN, having originally trained with Ince. Ian Cranston, Managing Partner of Ince & Co’s Monaco location, said: “I worked closely with Ian on a number of high-profile cases before he left us for pastures new in 2005. I’m very pleased to welcome him back. “Ian is a first rate operator and a great addition to our team. He has strong business development and legal skills and his ability to work well within a tight-knit team will be of major benefit to us and our clients.” Mr Cranston additionally announced the promotion, with immediate effect, of Marco Crusafio to the position of co-gérant of the Monaco SARL, in recognition of his commitment and dedication to the Monaco office. Jan Heuvels, International Senior Partner of Ince & Co, stated: “Ian’s recruitment and Marco’s promotion are recent examples of the investment that we continue to make in legal talent in our core sectors of transport, trade, energy and infrastructure and insurance. Mr Heuvels added, “Shipping remains a key element of our firm’s transport sector group and since the start of 2017 we have also opened in Marseille, with the recruitment of Laurianne Ribes and Fabien D’Houssy, and have hired Thomas Schwenke and his team in Hamburg.”

Welcome (To The Teknival) takes on new life at Villa Sauber

The New National Museum of Monaco (NMNM) has been hosting an exhibition of photographs by Kasper Akhøj, Welcome (To The Teknival), dedicated to Villa E-1027 in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, since early summer at Villa Sauber.

The exhibition has now been enriched with new photographs, taken in July of this year by Akhøj, which ends a work begun in 2008. The public can now admire 63 shots that are an echo to the portfolio made by the architect Eileen Gray during the construction of the iconic villa E-1027, the summer hideaway house designed by Eileen Gray for Jean Badovici between 1926 and 1929.

Kasper Akhøj also presents a new film entitled C2RMF75602, produced by the NMNM, in the video room of the Villa Sauber, recounting the restoration of a 16th-century painting entitled Portrait de Femme, attributed to Titian.

This film, shot in 16 mm, creates magnificent links to Welcome (To The Teknival), both of which pose many questions inherent in the conservation and restoration of heritage sites such as the Eileen Gray villa.

The Welcome (To The Teknival) exhibition runs until January 8, 2018. Villa Sauber is open daily from 10 to 6 pm; admission is €6 or free on Sundays.
