BICENTENARY OF THE "VENERABLE ARCHICONFRERIE DE LA MISERICORDE"The brotherhood of White Penitents, dedicated to the solidarity with the improverished, was the first brotherhood known in Monaco. Dissensions between its members led to a split and the creation, in 1639, of a new brotherhood, the Black Penitents. In 1813, the Bishop of Nice, who was also responsible for Monaco, reunited the two ancient brotherhoods. Such is the background of the current Vénérable Archiconfrérie de la Miséricorde. The stamp depicts the mosaic on the outside wall of the chapel devoted to the Virgin of Mercy in Monaco-Ville, created by Roman artist Ernesto Sprega, famous in particular for his many frescoes in the Prince's Palace.
