The Residence of the Ambassador of Monaco in Italy hosted, Tuesday, December 11, 2018, a Conference of Thomas Fouilleron, Director of Archives and Library of the Prince’s Palace, dedicated to the Grimaldi Dynasty.
Through this presentation, Mr. Fouilleron notably put emphasis on changing the status of the Royal Family and its action between the XIIIth and XXIth century, and its role in Monaco’s assertion as a sovereign state on the international scene.
In particular, the Speaker relied on documents and works recently presented to the Chinese public during an exhibition at the Forbidden City in Beijing, which was a great success with more than 500,000 visitors.
This great fresco of the history of the Principality for seven centuries has been much appreciated by the Italian public.
The evening ended with a cocktail reception hosted by HE Mr. Robert Fillon, Monaco’s Ambassador to Italy, and his wife.
Monaco welcomed four new Ambassadors to town this week, given a warm reception by first the Prince, then by the Minister for External Relations and Cooperation, who treated them to lunch.
