President of the National Council Stéphane Valeri, accompanied by José Badia, President of the External Relations Commission, and Virginie Cotta, Head of Cabinet, received on Wednesday, May 23, HE Cristiano Gallo, Italy’s Ambassador to Monaco.

In particular, they discussed the concerns of the large Italian community of more than 8,000 people living in Monaco, who in many respects face the same issues as those of the Monegasques, particularly in terms of quality of life and housing.

Mr Valeri spoke of the tabling of a proposal to go before the elected assembly for a law on the sustainability of a protected housing sector, at moderate rents, intended to maintain a stable population of “Enfants du Pays” in the Principality, including many who are Italian nationals.
