The Lunigiana is an historical territory of Italy, which today falls within two districts and administrative regions. The “high-middle Lunigiana” is located at the extreme north of Tuscany, in the district of Massa Carrara. The “low Lunigiana” is positioned in the district of La Spezia along the last stretch of the Magra river.
It has always been a land of passage and a natural corridor between several areas located in the Po Valley, Tuscany and Liguria.
A prosperous land where time seems to have stopped, the landscape has maintained its original charm and the signs of man have been preserved for centuries and engraved in stone and marble: The mysterious and prehistoric Stele statues, the numerous and fascinating castles, the Romanic medieval churches, the typical medieval villages, the ancient paths of Via Francigena and a series of remarkable and refined works of art from the medieval, Renaissance and Baroque periods.
