“His Tremendousness” Oversaw the Italian Village of Seborga, Washington Post, December 4, 2009

Mr. Carbone said that Seborga was overlooked in the 1800s when the small states on the Italian peninsula were unified to form Italy and that the town therefore should be a sovereign nation.

“We’ve slipped through the cracks of history,” he told The Post.

Few legal scholars agree with that argument.

“Fascinating, but completely preposterous,” said Anthony Clark Arend, a Georgetown University professor who teaches international law. “Irrespective of what would have been put on the books hundreds of years ago, it’s clear that the international community had acquiesced in the town being part of Italy, which is a sovereign state.”
