The self-proclaimed principality of Seborga (Liguria) claims independence from Italy

Bordichera – The self-proclaimed Principality of Seborga, the small town behind Bordighera, which since the last century has claimed its independence from the Italian state, has issued a new identity card, which will be issued to citizens who have requested it, starting from from the next few weeks.

No blank cards or anything. «The new Statutes – declares Princess Nina Dobler – update the version of September 24, 1995 (at the time of Prince George I, ed). They have been rewritten from scratch and are now more structured, complete and precise, responding to the objectives of completing, defining and clarifying the various regulations, as well as more closely following the current institutional structure of the Principality ». The Statutes will be promulgated by decree by Princess Nina and will come into force from next June 1st. Among the most important innovations: the principles of neutrality, defense of state sovereignty and protection of private property are introduced.
