christo saint tropez | riviera insider
saint tropez welcomed a new high-end art address to its main square this summer with the launch of the fondation linda & guy pieters in the place des lices. the inaugural exhibition is in homage to the work of celebrated artist christo and his magnificent mastaba project.in june, christo unveiled the london mastaba in hyde park. the temporary sculpture consists of 7,506 horizontally stacked barrels on a floating platform in the serpentine lake, and is the first major outdoor work of his to be displayed on british soil. the mastaba concept is an enduring one for the bulgaria-born artist; its origins can be traced back in his work to 1958.at the same time as the physical presentation, an exhibition is being held at the serpentine galleries in london (until 9th september) that shares a theme with the opening event at linda and guy pieters fondation. both draw on christo’s journey with his wife jeanne-claude (1935-2009) of creating his now numerous mastaba (meaning house for eternity or eternal house in ancient egyptian). christo was in fact present at the saint tropez location in late july to sign copies of his newly released book: christo and jeanne-claude: barrels and the mastaba, 1958–2018. the fondation’s exhibition, which includes preparatory works, is open until 23rd september.the new gallery space is free to enter for the public and hopes to host three to four exhibitions per year. next spring, the gallerist, who also operates three art institutions in belgium, plan...

riviera insider: monsieur rose, after working as the director of tourism, you were recently given the task of coordinating efforts to better promote monaco abroad. what can you tell us about your strategy for the project? guillaume rose: i will be reuniting all stakeholders responsible for promoting and managing monaco’s image overseas. i am also working on a government study that will figure out the needs of the principality as well its opportunities and its weaknesses. i am meeting all those involved in ‘exporting monaco’ – whether for diplomatic, economic, touristic, cultural or scientific reasons – and will then provide my own recommendations on how we can all best work together. establishing a common goal and good working relationships between these actors is essential to our efforts. my role will be to ensure that, upstream, the decisions made at executive level are applied and that there is synergy in respective missions. expectations are high and some excellent work has already been done on the subject by the monaco economic board.ri: to the rest of the world, monaco is many different things: a glamourous destination for the super rich, one of the last european nations with an authentic sovereign, a very safe and security-focused country... what is the image of monaco you would like to communicate to the world? gr: one of a cosmopolitan, innovative and open country! and that monaco is a nation whose history is long, and whose population is welcoming and unit...

beausoleil inaugurates new escalators | riviera insider
friday 6 september marked the inauguration of two city escalators, one three metres, the other six metres, that connects to boulevard de la république and avenue general-du-gualle. the mayor of beausoleil, gerard spinelli, is pleased to finally offer the moving stairs to his residents. “for 25 years residents have been asking for escalators,” he said. beausoleil is the second city in france to have an urban outdoor escalator installed. the new addition is sure to be a releif to its residents, especially the elderly and the physically impaired. the escalators that help transport people up the steep terrain of the city, have finally been approved because of improvements in technology to handle the long steep requirements. nevertheless, it was a significant investment for the city, costing €760,000 for the first two, plus €6,000 per year in maintenance. there are four other planned escalators from the city, with the next on avenue du professeur langevin, in 2021. additionally, a much longer escalator from the centre up to the riviera palace, with an estimated cost of €8 million. however, the mayor is hoping for support from monaco in the construction.around 30% of the 6,000 residents are employees in the principality. studies are being prepared to see the affect an escalator would have on the number of car commuters. if people were able to take the escalator instead, it could save a significant number of cars coming in to monaco, reducing the traffic load and par...

operation christmas child - an appeal for support
the french riviera branch of operation christmas child, an initiative started in 1990 by non-profit organisation samaritan’s purse, is calling on the support of riviera insider readers for its 2018 push. since the project began, it has sent over 146 million shoeboxes filled with gifts to vulnerable and disadvantaged children in 150 countries around the world.over the last few years, a group of expats in the south of france have banded together to organise a local effort, which has proven fruitful and well-received among the community, but more can always be done.“living on the french riviera and bringing up [our] families in this lovely, privileged part of the world is a million miles away from the sort of lives many other families experience,” says hazel fowler. “donating a fun-packed shoebox to riviera christmas child is a simple something we can all do and get our children or grandchildren involved in too, to help them understand what life is like for deprived children in other countries.” in 2017, the team helped pack and collect nearly 300 boxes that were sent on to children in the ukraine and libya. their target for this winter’s is 400+.“the cost of a shoebox and its transport is €5, which we ask people to pay on taking a box,” she continues. “filled boxes should be returned to one of our team spread around the region by 15th october or by 16th october to our drop-off day in vallauris. this allows us to get all the shoeboxes to one central point, p...

west nile virus strikes the cote d'azur
since 7 july, eleven cases of west nile virus have been reported to the alpes maritimes regional health agency (ars). these are worrisome numbers considering the virus is spread easily by mosquitos.the virus has shown to stronger and more widespread across europe in 2018 compared with previous years, with greece and italy being hit the hardest.the virus originates in infected birds and is spread to humans and horses by mosquitos, most notably the culex mosquito which feasts at night. humans are considered ‘accidental hosts’ as they can harbour the virus but not spread it.the ars has called on local health professionals and hospitals to be extra vigilant to the symptoms of the virus, which usually manifests like a normal fever accompanied by extreme headaches, muscle pain and sometimes skin break-outs. however, some people are a-symptomatic, meaning they don’t have any symptoms; and more rarely, some people experience neurological problems like swelling around the brain. the majority of people recover easily without complication, but some more vulnerable people such as immune-supressed or the elderly can succumb to the fever.the best way to avoid the virus is to prevent mosquito bites. officials recommend preventing the proliferation of mosquitos by being vigilant against stagnant pools of water in or near your home. this includes areas around trees that remain moist, standing puddles and water fountains. reservoirs should be covered with tissue or mosquito nets. wear lo...

how sophia antipolis is becoming a hub for tomorrow’s automotive industry
from the modern giants of google and tesla to the well-established powerhouse brands like mercedes, volkswagen and audi, it seems as though every car company around today wants in on automation. the smart or self-driving vehicle is no longer a sci-fi concept, but a reality, with tests ongoing throughout europe and the wider world. over the past few years, the south of france – and in particular the sophia antipolis technology basin – has emerged as a hotbed for innovation. the conditions here are just right according to those in the know, such as pierre sigrist, the former director of research and development for visteon and the current general manager of epicnpoc (an automotive and software innovation company based in sophia antipolis).“the côte d’azur is a unique environment for experimentation,” he says, “with a wide variety of road types deployed across an atypical geography between sea and mountains; a spectrum of connectivity from highly connected zones to those without coverage; areas of very diverse population density; a pyramid of the ages with a particularly large presence of seniors; a range of social issues on both the coast and in the back-country; an excellent technology ecosystem; and it has one of the world’s first official smart cities, the métropole nice côte d'azur.”from 5th to 7th september, antibes will host the annual driving simulation conference, which unites simulation experts from across the globe as well as various industry and a...

yves klein: a colour visionary
2018 marks the 90th anniversary of the birth of nice-born artist yves klein, one of the region’s favourite and most famous sons. in an interview with alexandre devals, the venet foundation’s director and curator of its current klein exhibition pigment pur, riviera insider learns more about the venerated colour visionary and creator of a timeless deep blue hue.riviera insider: ikb (or international klein blue) is found throughout the exhibition. what is so special about the pigment?alexandre devals: to be precise, this is not the ikb that yves klein patented in 1960, but the pigment he first used in 1957. for our installation, we show the blue pigment that klein discovered at edouard adam’s shop in paris, his purveyor of paints. he was fascinated by the purity of the colour and its lightness as well as the fact that it was so light and soft. we received the pigment from the yves klein archives. in total, 600 kilos of the pigment were used. in 1957, klein decided to exhibit the pigment at the prominent avant-garde gallery, colette allendy, in paris. it was both important to him and the art scene. even though the exhibition showed many other artworks, it was this one that gave its title to the show pigments purs (translation: pure pigments).why does klein continue to carry so much importance in the art world?his body of work is very impressive: he was a major creator and one of the inventors of dematerialisation as well as being a wonderful colourist. klein was absolutely ...

armand scholtès: a gardener of shapes
nature takes centre stage in the work of armand scholtès. this summer, a double exhibition - in both the main international perfume museum site in grasse and at the establishment's gardens in mouans-sartoux - has been dedicated to the french artists. the 82-year-old (who is originally from lorraine, but has been a resident of nice since the 1980s) is described as a 'gardener of forms'. his more than three decades on the côte d'azur have naturally influenced his works, which are best summarised as minimal and modern with touches of naïve and primitive art along with arte povera. in this unique style, the pieces depict scholtès' exploration of the region. `without the landscape of the côte d'azur, grasse could not have become the world's perfume capital as it is today,` says the museum director and exhibition's curator olivier quiquempois. for the mip gardens in mouans-sartoux, the artist and the director have condensed a mini version of this inspirational scenery. at quiquempois' invitation, scholtès has created a transitional installation of geometric shapes that interact with the location's diverse collection of mediterranean plants. the museum in old town grasse features a vibrant range of mutli-medium works alongside its permanent exhibitions that retell the history of perfumery. jardinier des formesthe exhibition runs until 30th september in two sites: the mip in grasse (open every day from 10am to 7pm) and the mip gardens in mouans-sartoux (open eve...

teeing off on the côte d'azur: saint endréol
any golfer passing along the a8 motorway should know – and make a stop at – saint endréol. it’s been described as one of france’s flagship courses and was designed by michel gayon, who is responsible for dozens of excellent sites developed in the last 30 years.close to le muy, the 18-hole course is beautifully laid out on a naturally wooded and hilly terrain. as there are occasional long walks between holes, a buggy is advisable. the often-photographed second hole is fabulously strategic, with a blind tee shot requiring a hybrid or iron if you're visiting for the first time, followed by a dangerous approach across the lake.if you're playing the course for the second time, you'll undoubtedly want to 'have a go' at driving the 12th. a big sliced or faded drive can bring the green into range on this short, but severe and blind dogleg. all you have to do is find the right part of the slope... eagles and quadruple bogeys are both common here!there is then a bit of a trek to the fantastic 13th. one of the best par 3s in the region, it features an elevated tee shot to a green surrounded by water on three sides. finding the extensive sand trap here will be a relief to many. the homeward route is less spectacular from there, although no less challenging. the river continues to represent an out-of-bounds challenge along the 14th, 15th and 16th, while the left is bordered by a steep incline. the intimidating 17th is a very tough hole. this index 1par 4 was, once upon a tim...

the story of one mountain town & its drive for alternatives
when temperatures on the coast and in the cities soar, we can always find freshness in the lower alps. for communities like caille, however, changes in the climate are making the step from winter destination to summer something much more permanent.the chairlift is still at the service of the skiers in winter, but during the increasingly long temperate season, it serves a whole armada of other sporting activities. a high ropes course with zip lines at arbre & aventure, a caving system 45 metres below the ground at the via souterrata, mountain bike and e-bike trails, karting from the top to bottom of the lift with runix, a tepee village for overnight stays... all are grouped around the parc de la moulière and the lift station.mayor yves funel has been in charge here for 23 years, but has spent his whole life  in caille, which is around 45 minutes from grasse. everyone knows everyone: there are just 450 year-round  residents. up here, 1,200 metres above sea level and far removed from the bling of the coast, life is obviously pretty good. the weather can be rough, but the strength of the community is no doubt thanks – in part – to the harshest of the climate.caille lies at the foot of the baou roux and overlooks a vast grassy plain. surrounded by hills of the préalpes d'azur nature reserve, cows graze in summer and sheep in the autumn after returning from the higher peaks. in good winters (for sport), the snow can be several metres deep: perfect for cross-country skiin...

reporting from the yacht club de monaco
an institution in the principality since its founding in 1953, the yacht club de monaco (ycm) unites over 2,000 prestigious members of 66 nationalities in their love of sailing and the ocean. the fifth edition of the solar & energy boat challenge took place in the waters before the famous yacht club de monaco from 12th to 14th july. a unique event sponsored by the prince albert ii of monaco foundation, hydros foundation and international powerboating federation (uim), the challenge gives young engineers an  opportunity to reinvent boating to meet future energy and environmental imperatives. “it is part of the principality’s commitment to the environment led by [the yacht club’s] president, prince albert ii,” says ycm general secretary, bernard d’alessandri. “if we want to position monaco as the capital of yachting, we need to play a part in these technologies.” this year, the endurance fleet race and timed one-on-one slalom duels were being sponsored by bertrand piccard, the swiss aeronaut behind solar impulse. “when i saw what they can do with foiling solar or hydrogen powered boats, which lift off the water producing some tense races, and all this without noise or   pollution, i thought this is something that needs to be encouraged,” he said of the 2017 edition. for this year’s competition, the ycm has introduced a brand new concept with the monaco energy class. engineering students have been given a one-design catamaran hull for which the challenge ...

compassion & innovation: l. raphael launches skin programme for young adults
israeli beauty entrepreneur ronit raphael has been at the forefront of innovation in her industry for more than 30 years. she was to be a dancer, but her plans changed course at 18 when, in an effort to treat her acne, she suffered second-degree burns following an ill-informed chemical peel. during the years that followed, ronit consulted with leading dermatologists around the world and ultimately created her own brand today known as l. raphael.although her work has typically been directed towards her adult clients – l. raphael is a pioneer in state-of-the-art treatments such as its oxy-technologies and patented lec 40 lipid complex – in 2018, she has returned to the roots of her experience by launching the young program for teenagers. “i specifically designed the program to provide solutions to many of the common concerns young people have today,” she says from the rooftop terrace of her 900m² spa at the hôtel martinez in cannes, “including acne and skin complaints, weight and issues linked to nutrition, and excessive body hair.” as a mother of three and a former sufferer of bad skin, ronit is more than familiar with the blows these problems can inflict on self-confidence: “watching my children come face-to-face with similar challenges drives me to develop more and more effective solutions that can help them and other teenagers around the world.” the young program is available at all l. raphael locations (cannes, geneva, verbier, kazakhstan, new york and be...

getting going with pura vida
while it may seem that new and exciting food trucks are increasingly ubiquitous, being able to navigate through the incessant red tape and actually start the venture is rather hard work.friends aude declerq and alexandra weitten have been working relentlessly to put the wheels in motion for their new business, pura vida. from their 1980 renault  stafette, the duo will be serving up buddha bowls, which aude describes as ‘a nourishing meal that's just a little bit of  verything: a mix of grains, a smattering of protein, and an assortment of vegetables’. unlike most food trucks, pura vida  will be serving up exclusively cold dishes: “all our ingredients will be  fresh, local and organic wherever possible.” while  pura vida opened its doors – or is that windows? – on 6th june in antibes’ port vauban, the journey to get there was anything but smooth. “the french administration is quite difficult,” says aude, with a telling emphasis on quite’. “they need documents for everything: car registration, food hygiene, alcohol licence and much more.” the pair also had to attend a week of training to earn their self-employed status. “we had to cancel events,” she laments. “everything took so long!” but despite the exasperating experience to get pura vida on the road, the concept of healthy and fresh food on the move seems to be going down well. “we have been lucky so far,” says aude. “bookings are filling up quickly for private events and weddings...

explorer prince: the adventures of albert i
as a young boy, prince albert i of monaco (1848-1922) stared out across the waters below the palais princier and dreamed of the days he would sail out of port hercules to explore new lands and seas.when he ascended to the monegasque throne in his early 40s, the prince already had decades of experience out on the water from his days in both the spanish and french navies and later aboard his faithful two-masted schooner, the hirondelle, as well as several other high-performing vessels for the age. he led 28 scientific expeditions – in the mediterranean, to the azores and up to the arctic – and devoted much of his life to the then-relatively young field of  oceanography. the great-great-grandfather of monaco’s current sovereign, prince albert ii, also played a role in some major scientific discoveries such as: the princess alice bank in 1896; two skeletons  dubbed grimaldi man that were found in the balzi rossi cliffs near ventimiglia in 1901; and anaphylaxis (collaborator charles richet was awarded the nobel prize of medicine for his work in 1913), as well as severalnew marine species. one of his most memorable achievements was the foundingof the oceanographic institute in 1906, which is today represented by the famous oceanographicmuseum in monaco and the ocean house in paris. over 54 wonderful pages, the glénat publishing house recounts 30 years of prince albert’s adventures in a comic book called albert ier de monaco: le prince explorateur that was created by au...

orange alert heatwave: how to stay safe in the record-breaking heat
this summer, the alpes-maritimes experienced its second hottest heatwave since 1943, with a total of ten days spent under alerte canicule orange – the 2nd highest heatwave alert by the government.between the end of july and the beginning of august in the alpes-maritimes, the average temperature was 29.3°c, and this lasted for ten days in total. this rather long heatwave was also marked by a record-breaking temperature of 36.3°c on august 6th. but despite this seemingly unbearable heat, it’s not quite as hot as a few years ago.the hottest year the region experienced was in 2003. that summer, the average temperature was 30.2°c and the heatwave lasted for 14 days, putting the elderly and the youngest in danger of heat stroke and dehydration. we are still in the thick of the heatwave with a high of 32°c today, which is a dangerously high temperature for the young and elderly. if you will be outside for an expended period time, make sure to seek shade and stay hydrated.staying safe in the heatheatstroke and heat exhaustion are can be serious, so if you or someone you know is showing signs of headache, dizziness, fever, muscle cramps or intense thirst, it is important to cool the body down immediately and hydrate. putting your hands in cold water or covering the skin with damp cloth can provide quick relief. the nhs gives the following four tips for cooling the body down if someone shows signs of heatstroke:1. move them to a cool place.2. get them to lie down and raise the...

monaco’s oceanographic institute has lost track of its sea turtle rana
the scientists and specialists of monaco’s oceanographic institute have recently lost track of a loggerhead sea turtle named rana. they had released it into the sea at the beginning of the summer in their first attempt of gps tracking a sea turtle. since 9th august, rana’s gps tracker stopped sending any signal. last time the oceanographic institute scientists received any signal from rana, it was swimming near the coast of spain, south of tarragone, a city about 100km away from valencia even though the reason behind the loss of signal remains unknown, three hypotheses have emerged so far. for the scientists of oceanographic institute, the tracker might have been altered during one of rana’s searches for food, where the turtle could have rubbed it on a structure of any kind. another hypothesis is that the tracker had simply fallen from rana’s shell, and therefore gone back to the surface, from where it cannot send any signal.  the third and last hypothesis the specialists could come up with, was that the gps tracker simply stopped working. this possibility however, remains the least plausible as they explained that the autonomy for a tracker like the one they used is usually about 2 years.rana was taken in back in 2014 in the port hercules in monaco, where it was found in a rather critical health condition. rana spent 4 years in the oceanographic institute where she was being taken care of. she was put back into sea on 19th june with a gps tracker fixed on her she...

la chaise bleue de sab’s artist to sue for illegal reproduction
nice painter and artist sabine géraudie (also called sab), has decided to take action against people who sell unauthorized reproductions of her sculpture la chaise bleue de sab. the chair, which stands on nice’s famous promenade des anglais, represents one of the most famous art pieces of the city. it is in a souvenir shop in nice that the painter saw miniatures of her sculpture la chaise bleue being sold without her knowledge. the artist’s artwork is sometimes used in collaborations with brands to create jewelry, paintings and even clothes, but sab says that the main issue is that this time the reproduction was not authorized. the artist even announced through her social media that she would be suing anyone who illegally reproduces her work, and that she had already contacted a lawyer to help her through the process. indeed, despite being  displayed in a public location, la chaise bleue de sab, which was unveiled by nice mayor christian estrosi back in 2014, is protected by the institut national de protection intelectuelle, (inp, the national institution for protection of intellectual property) that prevents brands and art pieces from being illegally reproduced. in less than five years, this 3-metre high sculpture has become quite a symbol of the city of nice, or as sab puts it “a symbol of the city, which travels across the world through pictures”. its particularity – in addition to reminding pedestrians of the famous blue chairs of the promenade des anglais ??...

back-to-school season is right around the corner, and landlords who rented their properties for the summer are now looking to rent their properties to students over the slower winter months. students can be a good solution for this as the academic year runs from september to may/june.this also works out well for students, as taking on a full-contract apartment includes high up-front fees and a full year commitment. finding a good tenant can be a challenge, though. the obvious solution anyone can think of would be using a real estate agency to give an ad more visibility. but most students won’t be looking for accommodation through an agency, as these come with an often high number of fees. and as a landlord, if you prefer to avoid your own high fees and the paperwork with local immobilier agencies, there are a good number of websites, facebook groups, and even mobile apps dedicated to this process and can offer some solutions to both landlords and tenants.so the best solution might be using websites where individuals put their ads online themselves, as well as taking care of conducting visits and filling out the necessary paperwork for the apartment to rent. some of these websites are rather popular in france, particularly with students. seloger (on this one you can access both individual ads and professional realtors) and leboncoin, for instance, one can find numerous apartments for rent.these two options are some of the most common ones, but their use becomes limited as so...

8th edition of the braderie d’antibes
starting tomorrow and for the next three days, the 8th edition of the braderie d’antibes, a large market of local shops where you can get some of the most interesting end-of-season deals. organised by the association des commerçants d’antibes coeur azur, antibes’ traders association, these three days are now becoming almost traditional, with thousands of people expected. with more than a hundred of shops scheduled to participate in the braderie with impressive sales, this will be an event where you can find anything: clothes, jewellery, textiles, beauty products, handicrafted items, and even local gastronomy. the three-day outdoor sale will be taking place in a large area of old town and the centre of antibes, entirely closed to traffic for the occasion. so more than just the wide range of shops and the diversity of choice they offer, this event is also the occasion for locals and passers-by to visit some of the most typical streets of the city without any traffic. certainly a more pleasant way to do your shopping.car parking will be free all day on saturday and people will be offered one hour of free parking on friday. when it comes to the matter of security, the traders association hired two guards to ensure basic security, and the measures of the plan vigipirate (france’s national security alert system) will of course be followed, with military from the operation sentinelle, as well as national and municipal police patrolling regularly during the entire three day...

sharp increase in drownings for 2018
as the end of the summer approaches, a recent report from santé publique france (spf), france’s public health association, shows a considerable increase in the number of drownings for 2018, compared to 2015. provence-alpes-côte d’azur is the second region in france for the number of drownings this year.the report, which includes all cases of drowning between 1st june and 9th august of 2018 announced  1,758 drownings, which is slightly more than double of 2015 (858). the study takes into consideration all the drownings that involved hospital care, whether they were an accidental, and whether they were deadly, as the french differentiate fatal and non-fatal drownings. with a total of 15% of the drownings (136, among which 24 were deadly), provence-alpes-côte d’azur took second, following occitanie with 18% (158 cases, among which 23 deaths).the institution in charge of the report explains that there are two main reasons to explain this rather high increase of numbers: a hotter summer than usual, and a better system of drownings detection put in place. indeed, with the month of june 2018 being one of the hottest since 1900 in france, people tended to swim more, therefore multiplying the risk of drowning.spf also emphasised the importance of certain reflexes to adopt in order to avoid drownings, including advice for kids and parents, for adults and for older people. it is advised for everyone not to rush into cold water after a long time in the sun; not to drink alcohol...

the motorway through italy is open after the morandi bridge collapse
the devastating collapse of the morandi bridge in genoa last week was not only a great tragedy for those who lost their lives (the death toll has now surpassed 40), but it had initially caused a serious disruption for travel between france and italy.goods, transport, and export to the port of genoa relied on the bridge for a smooth flow of products on both sides of the border.but perhaps the most pressing transport disruption was for those on holiday. due to the collapse of the bridge in the midst of august holidays and the day before the europe-wide holiday of the assumption, the morandi bridge was the main motorway connection between holiday travellers from italy and the south of france. considering the second week of august is one of the most trafficked weeks of the year, it is lucky that the bridge was not bumper-to-bumper with cars before the bridge gave way. for a previous article on the bridge and the nice and cannes mayor’s pledge of support to italy, click here.in the immediate aftermath, it appeared that traffic would be stopped and many travellers made last-minute changes, assuming they would not be able to traverse genoa. local hotel and b’n’b owners reported italians requesting extra days because they doubted they could return home. however, authorities were quick to divert traffic both through the city of genoa and north along the motorway to alessandria.the following day, signs along the autostrada were directing motorists from the a10 to the a7 towards m...

estrosi and lisnard offer full support after genoa bridge collapse
in light of the recent collapse of the morandi bridge in genoa, cannes and nice mayors david lisnard and christian estrosi have issued statements offering the italian government and the liguria region all their emotional and material support.following last tuesday’s catastrophe involving the collapse of a 200-metre section of the morandi bridge in genoa, where around dozens of vehicles fell over 45 metres, the current death toll is 39 to which are added 16 people in serious condition. the bridge, built in 1967, had already been subject to renovation and restructuration works back in 2016.the cause of this deadly collapse still remains unclear, but a number of explanations have been offered by specialists. while some believe the heavy traffic might have caused it (the bridge is used by around 25 million vehicles every year), others consider that the main issue was a design flaw, or that ongoing maintenance work that may have been at the origin of the catastrophe.following the incident, nice mayor christian estrosi has declared: “in the name of every nicois, i express our full support to the city of genoa and to the italian population”. estrosi also added that the city hospitals are ready to receive and to take care of the wounded if necessary. the provence-alpes-côte d’azur region will make any material reinforcement available to the city of genoa and to the liguria region.estrosi was joined by cannes mayor david lisnard in his initiative of offering italy material h...

a focus on roquebrune-cap-martin | riviera insider
during the 10th century, the château grimaldi was built by a count of ventimiglia to protect the burgeoning community against the saracens. the castle, which is one of france’s oldest existing battlements, still stands, as does the town’s famous olive tree. it was already more than 1,000 years old when the fortress was first erected, but is dwarfed in terms of history by the sabretooth tiger teeth and stone tools that were discovered in the town’s vallonnet cave. these date back one million years.for five centuries (1355-1848), the citizens of roquebrune-cap-martin lived under the rule of its powerful neighbour: monaco. all this came to an end, however, with the italian risorgimento or unification. the town became a free city under the protection of the county of savoy, but this too changed in 1860 when roquebrune’s 210 eligible voters (the population was 886 then compared to 13,000 now) voted on whether to join france. 194 cast the ballot in favour and roquebrune was officially purchased the following year by napoleon iii for four million francs.“if the roquebrunois had voted against [the move], we would all be monegasque today,” says the city council’s cultural representative, jean-louis dedieu.  the town, whose name comes from the brown rocks that surround it, nevertheless benefited from its historic affiliation with the principality.`roquebrune developed in step with monaco,” explains dedieu, who also has close ties with the enclave via his many years ...

pelagos & the principality: the state of the sea
beyond the speedboats and motor yachts, the waters off the coast of monaco are home to a rich marine ecosystem in which many thousands of dolphins, whales and tuna flourish. at least they do today: 30 years ago they had all but left and by 2050, experts warn that our seas could void of life.what a life it must be to have the sea as your office, the helm as your desk! at 28 years of age, david gamba is one of the lucky few to have found early on a truly fulfilling career. working for the yacht club de monaco, david splits his time between managing the organisation’s whale watching excursions and the fédération de pêche en mer that he founded last year.monegasque by birth, david grew up in the principality, but spent many of his childhood summers in spain, fishing off the coast of galicia with his maternal cousins: “fishing is one of the best ways to understand the environment and to learn how to respect the sea.” he considers himself to be lucky to live in monaco, a nation so culturally and historically connected to the sea. the principality is also part of a large marine reserve, the 87,500km² pelagos sanctuary, that has been under the protection of france, italy and monaco for more than 15 years. it represents 3% of the mediterranean sea and stretches from the giens peninsula near hyères in the var to the north of sardinia and fosso chiarone near tuscany on the west coast of italy. around 8,500 species live in its waters, which equates to between four and 18% of ...

federating fishing | riviera insider
“when describing the principality, most young people will talk about the casinos, the cars, the yachts and the palace,” says david gamba.“barely anyone will mention the sea, other than it being something for the boats to float on!” for this passionate, young fisherman, it’s something of a travesty: “somewhere along the way, we’ve lost a huge amount of our maritime heritage.”28-year-old david grew up on the port and has fond memories of watching the ‘old boys’ fishing with their rod and line from the harbour walls. how many do that today? not many. according to david, monaco has just one professional fisherman left, a guy called eric.in 2017, david and his friends founded the fédération de pêche en mer for amateur and artisan fishermen and women who have respect for the sea and its bounty. today it has around 30 members.“over the last decade or so, fishing has been given a bad reputation as an activity that plunders the oceans and strips them bare of all fish,” he says, “but that’s simply not what proper fishing is about. a good fisherman would never take all he could catch because then there would be nothing left for the next year!”it makes perfect sense. why are fishermen tarred with this brush while mass commercial and industrial fishing vessels continue to go about their work? “lobbyists and politicians,” says david. he describes himself as someone committed to nature, its protection and nurturing: “fishermen like myself can be on...
