Placed under the chairmanship of Rainier Boisson, the Heritage Council, composed of ten members, will have the mission of “formulating proposals likely to guide or improve the identification, protection, preservation, promotion and the transmission to future generations of the national heritage”.

In particular, the Minister said: “The extent of the qualities of the members will feed the Government’s reflections on this subtle and complex subject. The Council’s proposals will also inform the action of the Heritage Institute “.

In a country, constrained by its small size and constantly rebuilding itself, heritage is a priority for the Government. The Minister of State has thus stated that “as a State with a small territorial dimension, the Principality must remain attentive in order to preserve what makes it unique in a rapidly changing world”.

The Council is composed of ten members:

  • the Director of Foresight, Urban Planning and Mobility, or his representative under the Department of Equipment, Environment and Urban Planning;
  • the Director of Cultural Affairs, or his representative;
  • the Director of the Museum of Prehistoric Anthropology, or his representative;
  • the President of the State Archives Consultative Commission, or his representative;
  • Mrs. Michèle Dittlot and Mrs. Martine Fresia, respectively titular member and alternate, on proposal of the National Council;
  • Mr Dominique Bon and Mrs Camille Svara, respectively titular member and alternate, on proposal of the Communal Council;
  • Mr. Rainier Boisson and Mr. Cherif Jahlan, respectively titular member and alternate, on proposal of the Order of Architects;
  • Mr. Bernard Notari and Mr. René Croesi, respectively titular member and substitute, on proposal of the National Committee of Traditions Monegasques;
  • Mr. Thomas Fouilleron, Director of Archives and Library of the Palace;
  • Delphine Lacaze, Regional Curator of Historical Monuments.
