Partner of artgenève since 2014, F.P. Journe commits even more in the Art World by partnering with artmonte-carlo, the new salon of contemporary Art and design. Under the high patronage of his H.S.H. the Prince Albert II of Monaco, artmonte-carlo establishes a leading artistic platform on the Côte d’Azur, honoring the requirements of the collectors and art-lovers. The Principality of Monaco, because of its privileged situation and international prestige, was chosen as an ideal location to host such an event.
