The exhibition celebrating 70 years of the Monaco Red Cross (MRC) closed its doors last Saturday, March 3, the anniversary day of the founding of the Red Cross in the Principality in March, 1948.
Prince Albert was welcomed on arrival by the members of the Executive Committee of the CRM, as well as members of the Board of Directors.
Also present were Patrice Cellario, Minister of the Interior, and Stephane Valeri, President of the National Council. A hundred volunteers from the CRM had also been invited to the closing of the exhibition, which traced the highlights of the Monaco Red Cross, highlighting its commitment to its principles and the work of successive presidents, employees and volunteers of the association.
An anniversary stamp has also been published to provide a reminder of the times in office of the four presidents of the MRC who succeeded each other from 1948.
After a long visit, the Sovereign Prince left a message in the guestbook to show his enthusiasm on discovering the photos and videos presented. Prince Albert also congratulated the teams of the Monaco Red Cross and the scenographers for creating the commemorative exhibition.

The Monaco-Ireland Arts Society will be performing two modern plays on Friday, March 16, Stones in his Pockets by Marie Jones, and Ritual for Dolls by George MacEwan Green.
With just two actors playing over a dozen parts, Stones in his Pockets is a comedic yet tragic take on the effects of the Hollywood dream in a small Irish town. Written by Jones, the play is a sad, hilarious and irresistible two-man show about the filming of a Hollywood epic in rural Ireland. A pair of extras, Charlie and Jake, tell the story by taking on all the roles themselves, an ingenious theatrical trick that has a political kick.
Entr’acte, Ritual for Dolls tells the story of four toys that lie forgotten in an attic, a tale that bursts with violence through the strait-lacing of Victorian society, as a golliwog, a toy soldier, a doll and a monkey with a drum each night re-enact the intense events in the lives of the brother and sister who had owned them.
The 8:30 pm event, which takes place at Auditorium Collège Charles III (parking opposite), is presented by the Monaco-Ireland Arts Society, now in its 24th year. “We are a small group of actors committed to presenting our local audiences with the works of Irish authors and playwrights.
‘We spend many months rehearsing our dramatised costumed play-readings and have produced evenings on Shaw, Wilde, Friel, Synge, and many other well-known authors.”
The March 16 evening, like all of the Monaco-Ireland Arts Society events, are free of charge. “We rely on the memberships to continue our work.”
Membership to the Monaco-Ireland Arts Society is only €15/year. Download an application form here.
