The Principality of the Maratian Presidia is a micronation located between the valleys that separate the Ligurian Alps and the Apennine arc in the north of the italian peninsula. The Principality has a feudal nature and structure, and is composed of different territorial parts, with different legal identity, called Presidia (in italian: Presidi). Sovereign of the principality is His Serene Highness Massimo I. Capital, seat of the Prince and the institutions is Cà di Cröse in the Presidia of the Cröse.


The Principality of Maratian Presidia officially born on April 25, 2016 with a formal and official foundation, but its history is much more ancient, realizing the merger into a single entity of different pre-existing micronations that were already jointly governed in personal union of sovereign or government. The history of the maratian micronations begins back in 1996: in that year the State of the Casa, the Marquisate of El Casci, Nonnalandia and the Kingdom of Rocchetta The life of these micronations is turbulent, frequents changes of political line, of institutional form and of head of state. They have always lived a struggle between the ideas of ​​their single autonomy and of their unification.

At the beginning of the 2000 a first form of monarchical unification was attempted with the birth of the Empire and the guidance of Massimo Marazzo, who simultaneously held the positions of President of the Council of the Kingdom of the Casa(former State of the Casa), Marquis of El Casci, Pretender to the throne of Nonnalandia, Doge (late as a King) of Genoan Residence... However the times are not ripe and the centralized, unitary and uniform approach of the empire proves to be bankrupt.

Thus a conflict arises in the attribution of powers, the end of which is ratified on june 21, 2003 with the treaty called "Protocolli Gonzaghiani" with which a balance is reconstituted between the various micronations, redistributing the various sovereignties but leaving the various territories completely disconnected. A permanent Territorial Council is also established, but it will hardly ever be used.

The road of unification is not forgotten and in those years the creation of a confederal structure is attempted, leaving many autonomous prerogatives to the member states: the "Federation of the Lands of the Rooster" is born, which takes its name from the emblem distinguished the coat of arms of the various monarchs. This federation, even if it will not be formally abolished, will never come into force. A new reorganization of the equilibrium between the maratian micronations takes place on january 2, 2009 with the treaty called "Protocolli Basiliani" with which not only the equilibrium between micronations is rewritten more equitably but with an attempt to harmonize the legislation the first step for effective unification. Is estabilished a Consult of the Presìdia and for the first time is used the name "presidia" for talking about the micronational territories. Since that time, the political parties of the various maratian micronations have begun an approach by orientation to create real transnational party family, first of all it will be the deployment of the various Popular forces that have always been more or less leaders in all the maratian micronations.

During the year 2015 the idea of ​​a feudal unification on the model of the spanish "fueros" begins to make its way. The individual micronations are tired and tired in their activity and this general climate encourages the planning of unification. In early 2016, work began on the foundation of the Principality, a new heraldry is designed and develops a more legitimist idea in the recognition of sovereign titles: the titles of King and Emperor are rejected because they do not adhere to the real consistency of Presidia recognizing as correct title that of Lord of the Presidia that can be ennobled in "Prince" according to the most ancient custom. From this title derives all the nobility of the Principality.

On April 25, 2016, in a sober but solemn ceremony, the enthronement of S.A.S. Massimo I as Lord and Prince of all the Marazzini Presidia. On the same day, the new Prince graciously grants the General Statutes of the Principality with which he establishes the form of the new state and reconfirms the peculiarities of each individual garrison. Thanks to the General Statutes there will be the first General Council elections won by the deployment of the Popolari (a clear filomonarchical and unitarianist alignment) In the following weeks the population of the Principality changed from "6" to "10" members and work began on the expansion of the Principality back to some Genoese area Presidia. In the following August a serious crisis affects the principality and also the institution of the monarch, the population falls again to "6" members In September 2016, due to the consequences of the crisis, new elections are held for the General Council in a very fragmented political framework. In the first months of 2017, the Principality of the Marazzini Presidia comes into contact with the Grand Duchy of Nesti and following several interviews in which a common vision is highlighted, after the mutual formal recognition, a treaty of collaboration is signed on April 10, 2017. Following these facts a first contact is created also with the Confederation of Da Caciolle whose dialogue will remain in fact suspended. Since the beginning of 2018, various political forces have paved the way for proposals for a further medievalization of the political system, assuming a radical change in the General Statutes for what concerns the composition of the General Council and the structure of the government. Given the requests in this sense and the now simplified political framework, new elections to the General Council are called for mid-August of that year.

Government and politics

The Principality is a traditional and new-feudal monarchy.
The government is based on the direct or indirect possession of the various presidia, according to the type of possession and practical management each presidium enjoys a more or less broad self-government and a more or less close submission to the central government, there are no unitary regulations and universal on this subdivision and this itself varies according to the historical moment according to the principle of subsidiarity and the autonomy proper to feudal relations (on the model of the Spanish fueros).
Some presidia are then further subdued, giving the government and control of that territory to local lords, often not citizens of the Principality, at the same time may be administered by the government of the Principality other Presidia which are not owned by the sovereigns and thus participate in the principality only partially.
The highest authority is the Prince, who can sometimes be assisted in the government by other members of the family in a more or less intense and stable way, up to the hypothesis of the diarchy.
In the Principality the legislative power is proper to the prince, assisted by the General Council.
The executive power belongs to the Prince, assisted by the Secretaries of State.
The judicial power is proper to the Prince, assisted by the judicial courts.

Geography and climate



The currency of the Principality is the Lira divided, according to the carolingian tradition, into 20 soldi (one soldo ideally is divided in 12 denari but there are no emissions of this value). The exchange rate with the European currency, almost constant, is 1 soldo = 5 cents. of Euro. Since the birth of the Principality, banknotes of 5, 10 and 20 lire have been printed with the prospect of a broader coinage comprising both lower value coins and a new series of graphically more elaborate banknotes including the aforementioned denominations and others. During the period 2017-2018, considering the technical delays in the preparation of the new coinage, two smaller notes of 5 and 20 soldi were introduced. In the Principality's economy the European currency is tolerated and accepted but viewed with a bad eye.
