Monaco’s pre-eminent gallerist, Adriano Ribolzi, has been awarded one of France’s top honours, the Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters.

The decoration, from the French Ministry of Culture and Communication, was handed to Mr Ribolzi by Her Excellency Marine de Carne-Trécesson, Ambassador of France to Monaco, at a small gathering at the Adriano Ribolzi Gallery on September 28.

About sixty guests came to share with Mr Ribolzi and his family this important moment in his professional life and a recognition of his unique contribution to the understanding and appreciation of art.

A Swiss native, Adriano Ribolzi was the first foreign antique dealer to settle in the Principality, opening his gallery in 1974.

Prince Albert honoured the occasion with his presence, and personally congratulated Mr Ribolzi, adding even more honour and emotion to this special moment.
