LIVORNO IN BRIEF
The city has ancient origins dating back to prehistoric times but much of its present appearance is due to Cosimo I, Grand Duke of Tuscany.
Starting from the building of the port, the Duke commissioned Master Bernardo Buontalenti to develop a city around the ancient fortress, which is still visible today. It gradually became the base for numerous commercial activities that attracted people from all over Europe, thus enriching its culture and art.
From the 1700s, Livorno has enjoyed a great cultural fervor, thanks to the works of prominent individuals such as: Cesare Beccaria with his work Dei Delitti e delle pene, and Diderot and D’Alembert who published the third edition of their Encyclopedie ou Dictionnaire raisonne des Sciences, des Art set des Metieres here.
The city is also the base of the prestigious Naval Academy which was instituted in 1881 by the merging of the Naval Schools of Genoa and Naples, and gave birth to people such as: the artist and sculptor Giuseppe Fattori, the artist Amedeo Modigliani and the musician and composer Pietro Mascagni. Livorno has plenty to offer visitors in search of places with historic/artistic memories.
