The exhibition celebrating 70 years of the Monaco Red Cross (MRC) closed its doors last Saturday, March 3, the anniversary day of the founding of the Red Cross in the Principality in March, 1948.

Prince Albert was welcomed on arrival by the members of the Executive Committee of the CRM, as well as members of the Board of Directors.

Also present were Patrice Cellario, Minister of the Interior, and Stephane Valeri, President of the National Council. A hundred volunteers from the CRM had also been invited to the closing of the exhibition, which traced the highlights of the Monaco Red Cross, highlighting its commitment to its principles and the work of successive presidents, employees and volunteers of the association.

After a long visit, the Sovereign Prince left a message in the guestbook to show his enthusiasm on discovering the photos and videos presented. Prince Albert also congratulated the teams of the Monaco Red Cross and the scenographers for creating the commemorative exhibition.
