Haute-Corse (French: [ot kɔʁs] (About this soundlisten); Corsican: Corsica suprana [ˈkorsiɡa suˈprana], Cismonte [tʃiˈzmɔntɛ][a] or Alta Corsica; English: Upper Corsica) is (as of 2019) an administrative department of France, consisting of the northern part of the island of Corsica. The corresponding departmental territorial collectivity merged with that of Corse-du-Sud on 1 January 2018, forming the single territorial collectivity of Corsica, with territorial elections coinciding with the dissolution of the separate councils.[1] However, even though its administrative powers were ceded to the new territorial collectivity, it continues to remain an administrative department in its own right. The people living in the department are called Supranacci.

History

The department was formed on 1 January 1976, when the department of Corsica was divided into Upper Corsica (Haute-Corse) and Southern Corsica (Corse-du-Sud). The department corresponds exactly to the former department of Golo, which existed between 1793 and 1811.

On 6 July 2003, a referendum on increased autonomy was voted down by a very thin majority: 50.98 percent against to 49.02 percent for. This was a major setback for French Minister of the Interior Nicolas Sarkozy, who had hoped to use Corsica as the first step in his decentralization policies.

On 1 January 2018, Haute Corse's administrative powers were abandoned and were ceded to the new territorial collectivity of Corsica.

Geography

The department was surrounded on three sides by the Mediterranean Sea and on the south by the department of Corse-du-Sud.
