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.

National Council President Stéphane Valeri has visited the Grimaldi Forum to thank the team behind the screening campaign, while also encouraging more people to take the Covid-19 antibody test.
Prince Albert has been tested at a Covid-19 screening centre in Monaco to raise awareness about the government’s campaign to have as many people of the Principality tested as possible.
Monaco’s primary students made their return to school on Monday, the final group to do so in the government’s three-phase plan to lift the lockdown.
The Principality ordered some 11.5 million masks at the height of the crisis. Now those masks are being safely stored by the government for a rainy day.
