Pietrasanta Tuscany: Artist's Sanctuary

Pietrasanta Tuscany, the city of marble, is located in northern Tuscany on the coastal plains, at the base of the Tuscany mountains. In the province of Lucca, it is the home of the great sculptors who love to work with the nearby Carrara stone, famous for the white or blue-gray marble quarried there.

We traveled south by train from the Cinque Terre in Liguria, Italy to coastal Tuscany to visit the city where, during the last 600 years, all the masters of sculpture have called Pietrasanta home at one time during their life, including Michelangelo, Henry Moore and Botero.
