Meet Monaco’s newest citizens

Around 70 people acquired Monegasque nationality in 2023. Last week, the Mairie welcomed its newest citizens at a special ceremony in the Town Hall.

On Thursday 14th March, the Mairie hosted the traditional reception honouring individuals who acquired Monegasque nationality during the past year, either by law or by Sovereign Order.

Camille Svara, Deputy Mayor, along with Chloé Boscagli Leclerq, Charles Maricic, Georges Gambarini, Nada Lorenzi, Nathalie Vaccarezza, and Jean-Luc Puyo, members of the Communal Council, welcomed around 30 new Monegasque citizens in the Wedding Hall. They were among 68 individuals who acquired Monegasque nationality in 2023.

Camille Svara extended a warm “welcome to the large Monegasque family” to the attendees before presenting them with symbolic gifts including a reproduction of the original document of the Monegasque national anthem, penned in 1931 by Monegasque poet Louis Notari.

The reception concluded with the rendition of the anthem by the Children’s Choir of the Rainier III Academy.

As of 31st December 2023, there were 9,790 Monegasque citizens recorded; 67% of them acquired Monegasque nationality through lineage, 19% through marriage, and 14% through Sovereign Order of Naturalisation.
