The celebration of the Bicentennial of the Prince’s Carabinieri continues with a temporary exhibition in the library of the Prince’s Palace, highlighting the company’s two hundred years of history.

Uniforms, archival documents, paintings, portraits and audiovisual presentation will evoke the different missions of the Carabinieri and their role in Princely ceremonials.

This exhibition, the result of collaboration between the Compagnie des Carabiniers du Prince, the Historical Archives Service of the Palais, under the direction of Thomas Fouilleron, and scenographer Cécile Degos highlights the Company’s place in Monegasque life.

Included in the tour of the Palace, the exhibition will be open until October 15.

The Compagnie des Carabiniers du Prince was founded on December 8, 1817, in the reign of Prince Honore IV by his son Honore Grimaldi, Duke of Valentinois, administrator and future Honoré V, for the protection of the Principality.
