Versilia renowned name is not only deserved for its beautiful sandy beaches, in the shade of the Apuan Alps. It has been the homeland and meeting point of great artists since the beginnings of 1900. In those days, world-known artists, such as Lorenzo Viani and Galileo Chini, have made Versilia famous; it was the Liberty period, which has still left its strong mark in the lounges and palaces in Viareggio.
Also in those days, Pietrasanta became the destination for sculptors who found there not only well-equipped workshops where they could accomplish their works in marble, but also the most skilled art foundry.
