Context of the event

Monte-Carlo hosted this ball as part of a cultural, economic and tourist exchange between Monaco and Venice, with the support of Mr. Georges Marsan, the Mayor of Monaco and S.E. Cristiano Gallo, Italian Ambassador to Monaco. After two crowned editions of success, it followed the opportunity to organize a grand Gala for the opening of the 75th Venice Film Festival, to Hotel Cipriani, an evening whose flagship theme was the image of the Principality. HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco has agreed at the Grand Ball of Princes and Princesses, under his High Patronage, in February 2019, to exhibit during the event, the ball gown of Princess Grace of Monaco, worn in 1966 on the Centenary Ball occasion, at the Casino of Monte-Carlo.
