Over the centuries, the importance of Nice as a port town became more and more evident. Nice has been involved in several wars over the years and has allied with Italy on many occasions. In 1860, Nice became a territory of France, a state in which it has remained ever since. In October 16, 1979, 23 people were killed in a tsunami that hit the coast of Nice.
