Additional Location Information

The name Crespina, set in the heart of Tuscany, is probably derived from a personal Roman name (Crispinius) of Etruscan origin (Crespini, Crespnie). The first historical knowledge about Crespina is from 983 and refers to the Bishop of Lucca, the city that ruled the small town of Crespina until the 13th century, when it then passed under the dominion first of Pisa and then of Florence which, following a violent rebellion in the mid 15th century, dismantled the castle permanently. This is the most beautiful part of the Pisan hills; the district of Crespina includes many exclusive homes with names like Vallisonzi, Belvedere, S. Lucia, Cenaja, Borgo, Filichetto, Piazza, Il Poggio, Bizzucchello, Guardia Vecchia, Guardia Nuova, Fungiaja, Leccia, Carpineto and Volpaia; these villas became haunts for artists like Giovanni Fattori, Silvestro Lega, Telemaco Signorini and many other Macchiaioli (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macchiaioli) like Cannicci and Cecconi. Crespina is easily reached; it is only 80 km from Florence, 35 km from Pisa, 35 km from Livorno and 60 km from Lucca and Viareggio. Vinci, the birthplace of Leonardo, is only 50 km away where you can also visit the museum. Monteriggioni (cited in a canto of the Divine Comedy) and its castle are 90 km away. It can be reached by the A12 motorway to the Collesalvetti exit then the Firenze-Pisa-Livorno highway to the Lavoria exit.
