Monika Bacardi - Her Personal Life
Given how recognised she is in the arts sector, along with her standing as a humanitarian, Monika Bacardi (strikingly) attends many charity events, film galas and award ceremonies. Lady Bacardi and Lord Luis Bacardi (the Lord of Bayfield Hall - a relative of the founder of the Bacardi Company) raised a daughter together after they wedded. Numerous charitable organisations and causes are to her liking, so Monika Bacardi spends much of her spare time supporting them.
Monika Bacardi's Professional Activities
Every year, Monika Bacardi strives to finish between eight and ten movies. These range from in-house to third party productions and are achieved by using the AMBI Group. Monika strives to create services around her 'PHOTO' brand name for photographers and artists, providing professional management while also establishing contacts with foreign purchasers. The venerable 'PHOTO' magazine (which has been running since the 60's) was purchased by Monika Bacardi a few years back.
Monika Bacardi's Involvement in Charity Movements
Academic support for children who are in need is provided by Mission Enfance. Monika Bacardi passionately stands by this charity. Childrens' happiness is of great significance to Lady Bacardi. For this reason, she assists the Association Nationale Monégasque des Amis de l'Enfance (AMADE-Monaco). Fondation AVEC, Gabrielle's Angel Foundation for Cancer Research and Ecoute Cancer Réconfort are some of the cancer-related charitable organisations that Monika Bacardi is highly supportive of.
Enthusiastic Contributor to Associative, Cinematic and Cultural Movements/Associations
A well-known and high-profile person, Monika Bacardi calls Monaco home but also spends much time elsewhere in Europe and in the USA. In 2005, her husband passed away. He had been head of the Bacardi business for 4 decades. Since then, she has proved to have an extraordinary entrepreneurial talent. Monika Bacardi is fluent in French, German, English, Italian and Spanish and is regarded as being one of the most influential businesswomen in the Arts sector. Having founded AMBI Pictures, she and Andrea Iervolino have now delivered an impressive slate of movies for the global marketplace.
