Luni and Lunigiana

Nowadays, the area of Lunigiana corresponds to the valley of the river Magra, but its historic boundaries are wider. It is the land of proud people, that hardly resisted to Roman people, and was then deported in Sannio.

Standing between Toscana and Liguria, this area presents the most typical features of these two regions. In summer time, the small villages are animated by gastronomic and medieval festivals.

Its thousand-year history is present everywhere: in the enigmatic statues of Liguri-Apuani, its archeological Roman areas, its Romanesque churches and medieval castles and villages. The city of Luni is renowned because of the ruins of an ancient Roman colony.
