The Kingdom of Italy signs a treaty guaranteeing the independence of its tiny neighbor, San Marino

In Turin, Italy and San Marino signed a convention that guaranteed the independence of the tiny republic, now almost completely surrounded by the new kingdom.  The document detailed a close cooperation in commerce and trade between the two - San Marino coinage was deemed acceptable in Italy, for example - as well as the treatment of crime, extradition, and other judicial matters. The agreement has stood since and San Marino remains independent today.  (By John Osborne)
