The Mediterranean Sea: a wide open space where civilizations learn from each other. History wrought unique and fascinating events here. It is in this corner of the world, suspended between sea and sky, that we are welcomed by Sanremo,’s international breadth. This historical Ligurian town in Italy became an élite destination during the early XXth century, the Belle Epoque. It is a short distance into France, while relishing the spectacular natural scenery along one of the legendary seaside roads leading into one of the oldest states in Europe: the tiny but proud Principality of Monaco, boasting eight hundred years of independence. A spectacular tourist destination! An exciting dream, sparkling and always at the height of fashion. From there we turn back towards Italy, but to a different dimension: the Principality of Seborgathe town all historical international treaties forgot! It has now claimed its independence and, on the strength of that, it issues its own passports and coinage, as it was done centuries ago. Its position is its natural defence: overlooking the sea from the height of a Ligurian hilltop. You have just experienced a unique insight into languages, history, beauty, fashion and glamour on an unprecedented scale.
