Question about Monaco and the Schengen

So i am planning on going to italy and renting out an apartment there and traveling throughout. However im restricted by the schengen rules and i dont want to break any of those and run the risk of not being allowed back into Europe. Now i know that Monaco isnt formally part of the Schengen agreement, but that they tend to let travellers pass freely thrrough. Would i be okay if i spent my 90 days in Italy, and then left and spent 90 in Morocco, and returned to italy after? Or are the rules enforced in Monaco as well? ANy advice is appreciated!

There is no border control in Monaco - the nearest airport is Nice. Monaco counts as France, for your purposes.
Your stay in Monaco will be counted as a stay in Schengen.

You reference Monaco and Morocco, which? Morocco would satisfy out of Schengen area requirement.

UK is not part of Schenggen - you could spend your 90 days there and be safe.

Which are you talking about, Monaco or Morocco? Morocco would satisfy the Schengen rules, Monaco would not. I would happily spend 90 days in Morocco; 90 days in Monaco would be a nightmare for me.

Even if you could, under the Schengen rules, would you want to stay in Monaco for 90 days? And could you afford to?
