A DELIGHTFUL TOWN OF ALTA VERSILIA

Stazzema is a village in the province of Lucca, in the area of north Versilia. The area is very rocky and twisty, poorly suited to urban development. The approximately 3,000 inhabitants living in the small village live mainly from tourism and handicrafts.

Stazzema is built on the slopes of Monte Matanna and consists of many small villages that grow in height. The old town preserves the clock tower, also known as torre Medicea of 1739. Continuing the Fountain Cochere of 1500 and shortly thereafter "Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta", decorated with marble rose window of great value. Also notable is the sanctuary of the "Madonna del Piastraio", or "Madonna del Bell'Amore", built in 1600.

Sant'Anna di Stazzema, suburb of Stazzema, is infamous for the massacre that took place on the morning of 12 August 1944 at the hands of German troops. The massacre, which claimed the lives of 500 people, was probably the most heinous war crime committed by the Nazis on Italian soil. The moving History Museum of resistance, built near the parish church, remembers the victims perished in the tragedy.
