She is considered one of the most influential businesswomen in the arts field. Ms. Bacardi has lived in Monaco for over twenty years. Bacardi is the widow of Luis Adalbert Facundo Gomez del Campo Bacardi, who was a descendant of the Bacardi rum fortune.

Born in Italy, Monika studied arts and literature. She also speaks several languages, including German, English, Italian and Spanish. She has a passion for travelling and often travels between the United States and Europe.

Cinema is art, it is even a noble expression of art. I have always had a passion for cinema, even now, when I have two hours free, I often go to see a film.

Drawn to cinema, she co-founded the AMBI Group with Italian producer Andrea Lervolino. The aim is to provide financial support for medium and large budget international films.

She co-bought the French magazine PHOTO and developed her business interests in the creative sector. In 2017, she no longer owned the magazine and instead devoted herself completely to cinema.

The billionaire enjoys a life of luxury in Monaco, where she has lived for 20 years. She is also involved in several social causes and is committed to raising funds.
