Capannori

CAPANNORI

The territory of Capannori ranges from the Pizzorne upland to the Monti Pisani and the plain left by the drainage of lake Bientina. The heights around the main town are covered with scattered fortifications, castles and medieval towers that alternate with Renaissance villas of exquisite, refined design. The fortified places were built at a height that allowed for the cultivation of vines and olives, so they were not only military garrisons, but also villages where agriculture was practised.

Many of Capannori's castles are mentioned in the Chronicles, a manuscript written by the fifteenth century historian Giovanni Sercambi. Among the castles needing repair in order to check Pisa's advance towards Lucca, the historian mentions Pieve di Compito, the fortresses of Sant' Andrea, San Giusto, Vorno and Guamo, as well as the castle of Montecarlo, while among those destroyed by Uguccione della Faggiola, captain of the Pisans, he mentions the castles of Compito, Vorno, Castelvecchio and Nozzano.

The Pizzorne are a chain of rises, not so much high as steep, which are found to the north-east of the city of Lucca and in the north define the Lucchese plains. Since Renaissance times, some of the most noteworthy villas of the Lucchese have been built on the slopes of the Pizzorne. The position was particularly favourable due to many factors. The nature of the land and its mid-day exposure together offered the ideal conditions for agricultural cultivation, a splendid panorama and a pleasant climate. Many of these high-class residences have been built in the position that Sanminiati, author of a treatise on villas at the end of the 17th century, considered as ideal: on the boundary between plains and mountains. This guaranteed the presence of agricultural zones apt for various cultivations (grain, vines, olives) and woodland for hunting in the grounds of the villa. Such a position also offered the availability of steeply sloping water flows, useful be it for field irrigation be it for the waterworks of the fountains.
