Camaiore

SHARE:
  • Camaiore  :

 


The history of Camaiore dates back approximately to the 190 a.C. when the Roman, once founded the town of Lucca, decided to build up some fortifications at the feet of the Mount Prana, the so called Lucensis Colony, located in the great plain (Campus Major) from which originates the name Camaiore.

After the fall of the West empire, the territory was exposed to innumerable barbaric invasions, most of which leaded from Goths and Byzantins.
Lucca regained the command of the city with the aid of the Longobards.

Powerful palatine stole the control of Camaiore to Lucca and its people but, around in 1230, the city returned to be under the influence of Lucca and in 1308 became an administrative center.

The city, badly protected, had to endure more dominations and new destructions, like the one caused by German mercenary in 1329.

In 1440 Camaiore fell in the grip of Francesco Sforza and the domination of Florence.

The city was again under Lucca authority in 1470, but in 1620 lost the title of “administrative center” in favor of Viareggio, that thanks to its trades, assumed a greater importance to Lucca.

In 1847, the city became part of the Granducato of Tuscany under Leopoldo II, and in 1860, with the plebiscite, it was annexed to the Reign of Italy.
