H.R.H. Prince Giorgio I and His Knights launched in August an artistic auction to cover the costs of restoring the church of San Martin in Seborga. The collection on sale comprised 24 artistic paintings from artists who donated their works for this event and was exhibited at the Park palace of Bordighera.
A Mayor from the Italian Republic and a Knight from the Principality of Seborga were the celebrants of a wedding that took place at the Town Hall of Sassello (Savona). The vice Mayor Michele Ferrando was assisted by the former Mayor of Sassello Paolo Badano wearing the bicolour sash of the Knight of St Bernard of the Principality of Seborga. The couple: Tina and Fahrchid (Iranian and German origin), chose the town of Sassello as a place to holiday and to get married 10 years ago. The couple specifically wanted to be married by the then Mayor Badano who retired from public duty last year.
