I met Federica when I discovered Monte-Carlo Fashion Week last year (a mode, la mode, la mode,° and I immediately wanted to interview her.
You must know that Federica is a very very active woman! It was therefore necessary to find the day and the hour to meet and it is within the place we both like that we got to know each other better: the Yacht Club. I was conquered by her little Italian accent and her pretty smile.

She becomes the President and her goal is twofold: to make known the Principality’s fashion brands and make Monaco a professional fashion platform.
This is how the first edition of Monte-Carlo Fashion Week is created in 2013. Every year, talented, young, international, innovative and eco-responsible brands and designers are showcased. Conferences on fashion are organized in round table around professionals, fashion awards honor various personalities for their commitment and contribution to the world of fashion. An effervescence in the Principality!
Congratulations Federica for all these advances!
She is delighted today to share with us her 10 good addresses in the Principality!
The Thermes Marins de Monte-Carlo, where you can relax in the sun, swim quietly, go to the gym or receive magnificent treatments; a true journey between technological universe and islands of tranquility!
I love to have lunch in the sun at the Café de Paris, emblematic place of the Principality of Monaco, with its mythical terrace on the Place du Casino. I like its spirit brasserie, its different specialties and especially its famous crepes Suzette, which are cooked directly in front of the customer.
The “Club” restaurant of the Monaco Automobile Club, with its elegant and historic atmosphere.
Eleven Monte Carlo, with the most beautiful brands, including mine, Beach and Cashmere Monaco!
Fashion For Floors with their beautiful carpets and their fashion and modern deco.
The Oceanographic Museum: The Temple of the Sea.
From the ornamentation of the facades to that of the rooms, everything in the architecture of the Museum evokes the marine world; just by entering this historic building we breathe the ocean: through the Aquarium to the largest Mark Dion’s Cabinet of Curiosities of the marine world. In addition, the Oceanographic Museum regularly hosts temporary exhibitions, such as Borderline by Philippe Pasqua, or Taba Naba or Oceanomania. A must go!
Your evening address for a drink with friends?
The Fairmont Hotel Deck, with its wonderful view that feels like you’re on a boat and during the summer you can continue the evening right next door at Nikki Beach.
The hotel decor that you prefer?
The Hôtel Hermitage, with its “Belle Epoque” spirit that can be found in the Eiffel hall, or in the various cozy rooms, such as the magnificent Belle Epoque Room.
Where do you love to drink coffee?
At Cova! I grew up in Milan where Cova is the most famous pastry shop with its unique historical atmosphere. The opening of Cova in Monaco has made people happy!
A little getaway out of town?
In St. Tropez for its glamor and nightlife or Alassio, my hometown, to relax and enjoy the beautiful sandy beach.
