Contributor to Associative, Cinematic and Cultural Movements/Associations
Monika Bacardi spends much of her time in the States and various parts of Europe, although she lives primarily in Monaco, where she is quite famous and enjoys a high profile. She is widely known as one of the most influential businesswomen in the Arts world. Being fluent in Italian, English, German, French and Spanish is undoubtedly of considerable advantage to her. Italian "Lady of Bayfield Hall" (more often referred to as Lady Bacardi, or just Monika Bacardi or, more recently, "The Queen of Charity") has become quite a personality in modern cinematic circles throughout the Continent and the USA. "Fondation AVEC", "amfAR" (Making AIDS History Association) and the Monaco Red Cross are just some of the many charities that she helps, along with carrying out oceanographic studies and being engaged in many other philanthropic activities.
Monika Bacardi and Lord Luis Bacardi (the Lord of Bayfield Hall - a relative of the originator of the Bacardi Company) raised a girl together after they wedded. She thinks that one should strive to work with a smile and should try to stay buoyant. She spends some of her time at film galas, award ceremonies and good-cause events thanks to her reputation as a humanitarian and well-known status in the arts sector. Numerous charitable organisations and causes are close to her heart, so Monika Bacardi spends a lot of her leisure time assisting them.
