The Tuscany / Massa Carrara Province region
The Lunigiana is an historical territory of Italy, which today falls within the provinces of La Spezia and Massa Carrara. Its borders derive from the ancient Roman settlement, later the medieval diocese of Luni, which no longer exists.
Lunigiana covers an area from the Apennines to the Magra river, belonging in part to Tuscany and in part to Liguria. It takes its name from Luni, a Roman town, perhaps pre-dated by an Etruscan settlement, which became the principal urban center on the northern Tuscan coast. Some contend that the name Luni refers to the moon, a celestial body whose beauty is made all the more attractive when framed by the white-peaked Apuan Alps and high Apennine mountains. Others maintain, though little or no evidence exists, that the region was populated by those who worshiped the moon. As if to unite history and myth, the symbol of contemporary Lunigiana is a crescent moon held in the claw of a bear. The earliest inhabitants of this region may have been the Apuani (from which is derived the name of the Apuan mountain chain), an ancient Ligurian people, as well as Etruscans who may have inhabited towns along the coast and even the hamlets near in-land trade routes. Curiously, while evidence of both Roman and later Medieval settlements are ample, the wondrously appealing stele, late pre-historic and Bronze Age stone statues which have been found in large numbers in this part of Tuscany, remain the symbol of this ancient land. They are the first expression of the art and, perhaps, of the religious beliefs of the peoples that inhabited northern Tuscany from the Bronze Age to start of the Roman Empire.
The history of Lunigiana is one of passion; of intense creativity but also ferocious battles. The nearby Gulf of Poets saw the Romantic poets Shelley and Byron set the artistic world on fire and follow in the Renaissance footsteps of Dante and Michelangelo.
The Mulazzo area
Mulazzo is a very small medieval village on top of a hill overlooking the valley of Magra river. It is very calm and well kept. The territory used to be part of the Malaspina family in the middle age. It is at 600 mtrs altitude but only 20 minutes away from the wonderful Cinque Terre. It is surronded by mountains where it is possible to go hiking, mountain biking or horse riding.

Spinosecco is perched on a little hill in a very peaceful medieval village, which forms part of the Mulazzo area. The apartments are well-equipped, wonderfully clean, and the owners a delight. They were very accomodating with us and keen to assist with anything we asked them in our halting french (the language we had in common!)! Lucca and Pisa are within driving distance, as is the coast, about 40 mins drive. Sweet little local restaurants within easy reach by car, and a fab little shop down the hill with wonderful local produce and bread. Altogether a great place to relax. Marvellous swimming pool with amazing views and plenty of room around it. Not a huge amount for teenagers to do but our girls had a great time chillaxing. Wifi free and extremely efficient which was great for them too!

Se cercate un posto lontano dal caos dell'alta stagione, Spinosecco fa per voi. La Lunigiana ti dà la possibilità di staccare e rilassarti.
La struttura è molto bella, ben curata, nel centro del paese che si ripopola solo durante le festività.
Gli appartamenti sono puliti, ampi, luminosi e recentemente arredati con tutti i confort.
L'unica cosa che manca? Il minimo per cucinare: sale/pepe/olio/caffè. I negozi più vicini sono raggiungibili solo in auto (3-4 km alla base della collina).
La piscina è pulita (la titolare la pulisce ogni mattina) e a disposizione solo dei pochi ospiti del residence.
Ci siamo tornati più volte, è davvero un toccasana!
ps: non dimenticate di andare a mangiare al MontagnaVerde di Apella!
