Dolceacqua: Historic site of the Grimaldis


14 September 2023
Monaco Poste is issuing a €1.80 stamp honouring its relationship with the Italian commune

Monaco's Grimaldi family has a relationship with Dolceaqua dating back to the Renaissance. The parish church features an altarpiece commissioned by Francoise Grimaldi in 1515.

In recent years, relations between Monaco and Dolceacqua have intensified through actions such as the inauguration of a room Doria-Grimaldi in the Doria Castle in Dolceacqua and the title of "Honorary Citizen" conferred on H.S.H. the Prince Albert II.

The twinning between the two municipalities, which will be celebrated on November 3, 2023, aims to strengthen this bond of solidarity.
