BARDO is an intentional micronation.

The term micronation, which literally means small nation, is a neologism. It is an entity that claims to be an independent nation or state while not officially recognized by governments and big international organizations.

BARDO was born on February 20, 2020 as intentional micronation with the precise objective of uniting artists, free thinkers, holistic healers. But we have been active from 2013 as cultural association with a lot of events and projects.

The creative freedom of thought and action is the passport to join BARDO.

Together with respect for nature and for the planet that hosts us, the only true Kingdom to which we refer.

The coat of arms of the micronation is deliberately a call to noble heraldry in fact, but this does not mean that the duchy is monarchic: the citizens of BARDO are libertarians and the titles acquired are exquisitely Dadaists.

Life in the Duchy passes out of the time of modern civilizations, but it reclines to the rhythms of nature as in a contemporary monastery where daily practice and a primeval spirituality come together to create moments of pure wonder, art and beauty. Whatever you are doing like keeping a healthy wood or doing an ambient electronic music concert. This is the Bardo, a place where utopia has come true.

"The killing of 140 pets in a shelter is not considered a serious and irreparable damage by the Lazio TAR - La Sfattoria degli Ultimi".This creates a precedent that in addition to being terrible in this case can become pure madness for the future of all those who care about the welfare of their animals, especially in Sanctuaries.


The Duchy of Bardo supports the sanctuary of La Sfattoria degli Ultimi, aided by any means possible.

Honorary Citizenship to LORD DUNSANY, Ireland

BARDO is proud to announce a new exceptional citizen: Lord Dunsany has enthusiastically accepted the honorary citizenship of the Duchy, and this is only the beginning.

Randal Plunkett (film director/writer and metal-fan) has transformed 700 acres of his park 40 kilometers from Dublin into an area of rehabilitation and recovery of wild animals: forests, meadows, streams and wild streams finally welcome free animals. Yes, because Lord Randal has banned hunting by virtue of the freedom to live.

It is not your (micro)nation that makes the lineage noble,

but it is you who makes the (micro)nation noble.


The granting of noble titles instead belongs to the Sovereign, but all citizens of Bardo have the right to wear a personal coat of arms.

ABDUCTION [free_time_nature_creativity]

The project combines the need of those who love nature but live in the city, of those who love animals and feel they have a strong sense of belonging to the land but cannot yet do it in a constant and total way.

ABDUCTION connects volunteers and natural artistic and rural projects by promoting educational and cultural experiences based on a non-profit exchange of trust, to help on building a sustainable glocal community.

Who is an ABDUCTED: a person visiting the micronation who offers their time in daily activities in exchange for experiences and practicing sustainable lifestyles. 

* Please note that ABDUCTION is not a paid job - hosts do not offer monetary compensation!


Bardo micronation grows with a new Honorary Citizen
