As part of his regular travels to places historically linked to his family, and in order to receive a doctorate honoris causa granted to him by the University of Naples, Prince Albert travelled to Italy on May 15 and 16 for a friendly visit to several venues.

On Tuesday Prince Albert was welcomed by Valentina Pontromoli, Mayor of Bardi (Emilia-Romagna). The Sovereign visited the castle, in which a monumental fresco decor was discovered a few years ago representing the coat of arms and views of the various possessions of Prince Honore II of Monaco in the early seventeenth century.

On Wednesday, Prince Albert continued his travels in southern Italy to Naples and Campagna.
