Seborga is a small town in the region of Liguria in northwest Italy, near the French border. Administratively, it is a comune of the Italian province of Imperia. The main economic activities are horticulture and tourism.The town is notable for its claim of independence from Italy as the sovereign Principality of Seborga.HistoryIn 954, Seborga's territory was ceded by the counts of Ventimiglia to the Benedictine monks of Lérins, when its monastery was founded. In 1079 its abbots were also made Princes of the Holy Roman Empire, temporally in chief of the principality of Seborga.On 20 January 1729, however, it was annexed to the Savoy dynasty's Kingdom of Piedmont-Sardinia. However, no written act or international treaty recorded the annexation at the time. Seborga has since never been mentioned in treaties, including Italy's Act of Unification of 1861. That led its residents to claim that they lived in a sovereign state. Since then, at any rate, it has never been recognized by any state or admitted to an international organisation.The independence claim has been alleged to be nothing more than a marketing gimmick for the town's tourist industry, thriving, among other things, from circulating the Luigino, heir apparent of the Louis d'Or coined in Seborga while its mint was still active. This claim however, is contested by others who believe that Seborga has a legitimate claim to independence and recognize the town as such.
