MONACO II OPTICS


 

These were the years were elegance and charm were unmatched. Monaco in the ‘60s was the stage of unrepeatable love and grandeur. The French Riviera soul was inexorably flowing alongside actors, artists and worldwide famous entrepreneurs. Meanwhile, the Ye-ye Girls' pop music ran rampant with stars like Francoise Hardy, France Gall, and Gillian Hills who created hits like Zou Bisou Bisou with infectiously bubbly melodies winning hearts and captivate audiophiles. Monaco during the ‘60s saw the arrival of one of the greatest women of all time. At the end of the '50s, Grace Kelly was asked to join the United States Delegation Committee at the Cannes Festival in France. During this occasion - at a photoshoot - she met Prince Rainier III of Monaco, it was love at first sight and the two became inseparable. On April 19, 1956, the beautiful Grace Kelly became forever Grace of Monaco by marrying her Prince. She was undoubtedly the reason why Monaco became such an elegant and perfect place to be.
