The first Meeting of the Grimaldi Historic Sites of Monaco ended on Saturday evening with a spectacular Sound and Light show dedicated to the Grimaldi dynasty projected on the facade of the Prince’s Palace.
￼Several highlights marked the first day of this inaugural celebration of the history of the Grimaldi dynasty, including folk dances and cultural performances performed by the invited sites, the fighting of behourd, and also the traditional fire of Saint-Jean which allowed all the invited folk groups to associate themselves with the history of Monaco.
￼The first meeting also paid tribute to the Marquisate des Baux and the county of Carladès in honour of Hereditary Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella. The City of Menton, which was part of the Principality for five centuries, completed the list of guest sites.
The celebration continued on Sunday, June 24, on the Palace Square.
The French government is still banking on lifting the current restrictions on 3rd May, a mid-May reopening of restaurant terraces and a return to school at the end of April.
Residents of the Principality aged 45 and over are now being invited to get their Covid vaccination. Meanwhile, home-tests are now being stocked in pharmacies in Monaco.
Monaco has been earmarked as the home for a new private viewing space by Zurich-based gallerists Hauser and Wirth who will hold their inaugural show in June.
The Grand Ball of Princes and Princesses celebrates its fifth year in June, bringing the magic from days of old to life for one night only at the Hôtel de Paris.
