Former Strongholds Of The Grimaldis Of Monaco
In 2015, on the occasion of the commemoration of the tercentenary of the Alliance of Grimaldi and Matignon, Jean-Claude Guibal, Deputy-Mayor of Menton, President of the France-Monaco Friendship Group of the National Assembly, took the initiative to create a network associating the former strongholds of the Grimaldis in France but also in Italy. On July 10, 2015, the association was officially launched in Menton at the Palais de Carnolés, in the presence of H.S.H. Prince Albert II who is its Honorary President. Over a hundred municipalities in France and Italy have a shared history with the Grimaldi Family. The aim of the association is to publicize the old ties that unite them to the Principality of Monaco. It aims to bring together, enhance and promote these sites at cultural and tourist levels.
