The city is distinguished by its claim to independence from 'Italy as the sovereign Principality of Seborga. In 954, the territory was ceded Seborga by the Benedictine monks Ventimiglia of Lerins, when his monastery was founded. In 1079 its abbots were also princes of the Holy Roman Empire, time-in-chief of the principality of Seborga.

Since then it has never been recognized by any state or admitted to an organization in the region internazionale.Seborga is known for its agricultural activity, in particular, the cultivation and harvesting of olives and floriculture crops. Thanks to advertising Seborga as a principality, tourism has increased in recent years. Historic center of the Principality, was also restored, ensuring that his charm were protected from commercial overdevelopment.

He then allegedly took the title George I, Prince of Seborga, who said later. 
State of Coal as a prince (even if no legal power) was further supported by locals 23 April 1995, when, in an informal referendum, voted 304 to Seborgans favor, 4 against, for the principality of incorporation, and in favor of the independence of Italy.  Coal reigned until his death November 25, 2009.  The Prince was known locally as his tremendously ('Your Tremendousness'). 
The Republic of 'Italy and international institutions consider and treat Seborga (unlike San Marino or Vatican City, in the isolated peninsula) as part of the territory of Italy. In addition, there is tension between the Principality of Seborga and the Italian government, because the principality has only a symbolic value. Law enforcement, public health, telecommunications, schools and other public services are provided as in the rest of Italy. Sebor
