Photographer's Note

Livorno is an old Renaissance town, built around a fortress in the 16th century by the Medici family; its territory is mainly on the coast, characterized by the sea and the cliffs, creating a fascinating landscape until Piombino.

The town was at first a fishing village, but during the centuries it was transformed into an important harbour on the Tyrrhenian coast, a central port for tourism and commerce as well. Today it is a renown production centre for alabaster, wicker handicraft, pottery and goldsmith's art.
