Nikolaus and Margaretha Visit Bergamo

Prince Nikolaus and Princess Margaretha are making the rounds as of late. After a visit to Slovenia last month, they are currently in Italy for an "institutional and cultural visit". In Bergamo in the northern part of the country, they were welcomed by the president of the province Matteo Rossi and several other dignitaries earlier today. The couple was invited to Lombardy by the Centro studi Valle Imagna (Csvi) in collaboration with the community of Imagna valley and local economic organisations. 

"We long had connections to the countries on the other side of the Alps due to the emigration from Bergamo and the many thousands of workers and their families that have left in the past. With the invitation we wanted to make a testimony of gratitude and reiterate the important European tradition that unites us", explained Antonio Carminati, the head of the study centre. It was also Prince Nikolaus who helped establishing a priest from Bergamo in Schaan, Liechtenstein, to help immigrant families.
