On December 13, HE Claude Cottalorda, Ambassador of Monaco in France, invited the young Monegasques and enfants du pays who live in Paris for a reception in order to share a moment of conviviality before the holidays.

The Ambassador, his wife and the diplomats welcomed some fifty young students, mostly staying at the Fondation de Monaco at the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris (CIUP). Ms Karine Lemon-Médecin, Director of the Monaco Foundation, was also present.

The students took part in a quiz organised by the Ambassador and his colleagues, mainly centred on different aspects of the Principality, its institutions, arts, culture, history, and heritage.

All students responded brilliantly to the questions and the three finalists and lucky winners each received a gift.
