Four Evenings of Wonder
Established by the Monaco Town Hall in 1966, the essential Monaco Art en Ciel (International Pyromelodic Fireworks Competition) every year involves pyrotechnics shows of great quality. Summer is conducive to long evenings outside on the Port of Monaco where the fireworks proliferate for the pleasure and wonder of young and old. A very powerful sound system has been installed on the whole of Port Hercule, allowing spectators to fully enjoy these unique spectacles from the Quai Albert Ier.
Countries take each other on in the Monegasque sky in particularly technical salvoes in which visual and musical effects aim for perfect synchronisation! Of all the firework festivals organised in the world, that of Monte-Carlo alone brings together so many different nations and competitors.
Every summer, four evenings are scheduled, two in July (at 10pm) and two in August (at 9.30pm).
The Jury, made up of members of the Municipal Council and representatives from the artistic world and civil society, is chaired by the Mayor or one of his Deputies. A public prize is also awarded, decided by spectators voting by internet. The competition is organised by the teams of the Espace Léo Ferré.
