WINDOW ON THE TUSCAN ARCHIPELAGO

The commune of Campiglia Marittima includes inside the town of Venturina Terme where the homonymous baths were already known by the Etruscans and Romans.

The municipal territory extends into the Val di Cornia in an area between hill and plain overlooking the coastline stretching from the Gulf of Follonica at the coast of San Vincenzo. The name is first attested in 1004 as Campilia from the Latin campus (field) which in 1862 was added the term "marittima" from "della maremma".

The town was inhabited in Etruscan and Roman times, are still visitable the mine shafts and furnaces used by the Etruscans. The Rocca di San Silvestro dating back to the XI-XII century was founded by the family Della Gherardesca counts in control of copper and silver mines in the area. Even today you can see the wall that surrounds the entire resort, the tower and the entrance gates to keep.

Pisan domination until 1406, Campiglia Marittima was then submissive to Florence, becoming the southernmost point of the Florentine domains and its strategic stronghold. The fate of the municipality then followed those of Tuscany with the doctors first and Lorena then in the Grand Duchy of Tuscany.
