In Monaco, Mario Amegee breaks the ice

In Monaco, Mario Amegee breaks the ice

Mario Amegee, 2011 world champion ice sculpture in Alaska under the Monaco flag is actively involved in preparations of the royal wedding in Monte Carlo which will be held on Friday and Saturday.

Originally from Togo, the artist lives in the principality for several years where his talent has not gone unnoticed. 

His monumental works in glass have attracted the "Monégasque des Eaux", the main sponsor who is one of the tools to promote the country abroad.

For his marriage to the South African Charlène Wittstock, Prince Albert 

demanded several works from Amegee Mario on the theme of the environment and the sea, dear to Albert II. 

Some of these will be installed in the gardens of the Palace, other in Place du Casino and the Hotel de Paris. 

The ice sculptor works with a chainsaw and the chisel. A work of craftsmanship. 

In Alaska, the sculptures stand in the cold without any problems, but in Monaco, the situation is more complex. With 30 degrees in the shade, sophisticated refrigeration system will allow them to stay between 7 and 11 hours. 

Frédéric Amegee

In the principality, the Togolese community can be counted on the tips of one's fingers. Note the presence of Frédéric Amegee, the cousin of the sculptor. He is not involved in the organization of marriage, he will be among 200,000 other spectators on the rock. 

But every day, he took an active part in the promotion of Monaco abroad and with humanitarians strongly encouraged by Albert of Monaco. 

Director of a satellite Company, Sonema, he works closely with the Monaco Red Cross to provide tele-medicine to hospitals in Mali.
