This exposition allowed, among other things, to make a presentation of the first oceanographic campaigns of Prince Albert. The results obtained, the equipment used, and the participation of the prince to many international congresses during the exhibition, allowed Prince Albert to have a scientific renown.

GUY DE MAUPASSANT : A SHORT STOPOVER

Article from Number 13 - 1989 - GUY DE MAUPASSANT : A SHORT STOPOVER

Following a short stopover in Monaco in April 1887, Guy de Maupassant, then aged 37 and already well-known, dedicated some fantasy-based pages to the Principality, in a collection entitled “Sur l’eau”. This text rather humorist, describes Monaco as a military powerless state, without any moral and religious strengths, and devoiding a real judicial system. According to him, the Sovereign was using a vain authority and he considered the population as mindless subjects. (full text in French)
