This event takes care of one of the most important cultural and social gatherings of Italian nobility that remains deeply and inextricably linked to the history, roots and traditions of Christian Europe.
The Ball of 100 and no more 100 avails itself of an exclusive and rigorous Promoting Committee, which selects on the basis of certain requisites the people who are invited, or who, through members of the Promoting Committee, ask to participate.
The Georgia Royal familiy attended the Ballo Dei 100 e non piu 100 on the 14th of April 2018 in the beautiful city of Casale Monferrato, in Northern Italy. Princes Anna also attended the ball last year. This year she gave the key note speech introducing her father, the current Head of the Royal House of Georgia who was invited to become an honorary member of "The Historical families of Europe"n "The Historical families of Italy" and received the title of Honorary Member of the Circolo dei Cento and no more than one hundred, three organizations which are devoted to promoting the historical importances of families which have contributed to European history.

For this special event, Prince Nugzar decided to wear his traditional suit “Chokha” in analogue of Chokha that King Erekle II, his direct ancestor, in 1763 two separated kingdoms of Kartli and Kakheti had been united thus becoming “KING OF THE UNITED GEORGIA KINGDOM”. Prince Nugzar was wearing two breast stars - the St. King David the Psalmist and another the Royal Order of the Crown of the Georgian Kingdom including its Collar.
Before the collapse of the Soviet Union the Royal Family of Georgia lived inside the iron curtain. The fact of being isolated from the European civilization unfortunately allowed some other distant Non-royal members of the Dynasty to act as pretenders. Of course, if the country was not governed by a communist regime, these would not have been allowed to do so.

Pier Felice´s concept of association is that of a noble association open to the reality of our world, which preserves the historical right to the families that were part of the nobility, and opened to those families that in the past were NOT noble but today to attain an adequate social level or to receive private bonuses on their merits could be considered noble if the nobility were recognized in their country.
