The municipalities of Lunigiana

From Zeri to Fivizzano, from Pontremoli to Fosdinovo, there are 14 municipalities (comuni) that divide Lunigiana. Different one from each other but connected by a focal characteristic of the territory: all the municipalities have an ancient medieval village as their administrative centre. Crossed from north to south by the river Magra, Lunigiana is a territory nestled between the mountains.
On one side enclosed by the northern arc from the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines up to the Ligurian Apennines and in the southernmost part by the Apuan Alps. A purely mountainous territory, dotted with medieval castles that allowed it to be controlled, built during the various dominations that followed one another over the centuries.
