The year 2017 is a very important one for the Prince’s corps of guards, the Carabiniers. To help mark the bicentenary of its founding, several events will punctuate the months to come, in particular the Bicentenary concert, to be held on Friday, March 10, at the Rainier III Auditorium.
In the presence of Patrice Cellario, Minister of the Interior, one of the early highlights of the year has just taken place in the bar of the Barracks of the Carabiniers on Boulevard de Belgique with Commander Gilles Convertini, Head of Corps, Daniel Boeri, National Councilor, and Marc Costa amongst many other personalities.
In association with the Carabiniers, the Costa company, which operates several coffee shops and patisseries across the Principality, has produced 20 charms representing the different uniforms worn by the Corps over the past 200 years. The first 50 people who collected these 20 beans were invited to the party during which they were handed a 21st special collector bean.
A second person has died from Covid-19 in Monaco. Meanwhile, the Principality’s Minister of State has fully recovered from the virus.
Now more than ever, health is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. On 7th April, we have an opportunity to thank the nurses and midwives of the Principality during World Health Day 2020.
Monaco’s support workers caring for the most vulnerable in the community are making heroic efforts to maintain vital ties to the elderly and disabled, whilst trying to remain safe themselves during the crisis.
Since confinement began on 18th March, the Monaco police force has made 11,000 traffic checks on drivers entering the Principality.
