Number 20 - 1996

Summary

This issue is rather modernism-oriented. The “Archives document” honours a map dated 1602, and an article is dedicated to the Giornale by the priest Pacchiero. The 18th century is represented by Antoine I and both sides of his work (the creation of a path and poetry). However, the contemporary times are discussed within two other studies : In one hand, René Blum, who was the director of the Opera of Monte-Carlo in the 19th and 20th centuries, and on the other hand, seven Monegasque poets from the 20th century. To finish with, an article covers the origin of the Grimaldi dynasty, nearly seven centuries-old. (full texts in French)
