An inspired artist

Cradled by the sun of south-eastern France, this young illustrator was able to quickly tame the play of shadows and lights. Today, she lives in Paris where the summer waves of her childhood constantly influence her work and her good mood. After having proven herself for other major brands, she welcomed a collaboration with Monoïkos 1297 with enthusiasm.

A note of history

The Principality of Monaco now has 9 districts:

La Condamine is the commercial district of the Principality. It is renowned, among other things, for its relaxed lifestyle, its market, its many shops, the historic port of Monaco: Port Hercule and for being the place of departure and arrival of the F1 Grand Prix on Avenue Albert 1er .

The Fontvieille district was built on the sea in the 1970s (between 1966 and 1973) by HSH Prince Rainier III. Former industrial area of ​​Monaco, it is notably the host of the Stade Louis II, the Port of Fontvieille (second port of Monaco), the Roseraie Princesse Grâce and the Chapiteau de Fontvieille, also created and designed on the initiative of Prince Rainier III to host the International Circus Festival of Monte-Carlo, a world reference for Circus Arts.

The Exotic Garden, located the most westerly of Monaco, is one of the gateways to Monaco and houses the extraordinary Exotic Garden of Monaco, built on the initiative of Prince Albert 1st.

Le Larvotto, with its direct access to the beaches, is the seaside district of Monaco. It offers the opportunity for a walk as close as possible to the sea but also the possibility of attending prestigious events in the illustrious Salle des Etoiles du Sporting or of visiting magnificent exhibitions at the Grimaldi Forum.

The Moneghetti dominate the Principality. It is a residential area with splendid combined views of the Principality and the sea, the Princess Antoinette Park and the Museum of Anthropology founded by Prince Albert I in 1902 to preserve the vestiges of the dawn of humanity.

Monaco-Ville called le Rocher is located "on the rock" of the Principality. It is considered the historic center of Monaco. Its narrow streets lead to the famous Place du Palais where the Prince of Monaco resides, the Oceanographic Museum and the Cathedral of Monaco...

Monte-Carlo is its most famous district, to the point of being sometimes confused with the whole country, or considered – wrongly – as its capital. Famous for its casinos, its prestigious hotels and restaurants and its numerous luxury boutiques which make this district one of the most popular in the Principality.

The Ravine of Sainte Dévote, the smallest district of Monaco, is home to the Sainte Dévote church, the patron saint of Monaco. The story goes that the boat, which carried his tortured body to Africa, was caught in a storm, then guided by a dove to the shore of what would later be called Monaco.

La Rousse, entry point to the principality to the east and also better known as Saint Roman. This district housed the Moulins de Monaco in the 18th century, when the main resource of Monegasques was olive growing.
