Fosdinovo

The origins of Fosdinovo are connected to a new road from the coast to the inner valleys of Lunigiana. From here comes its name (from Fauce Nova, that is new passage), attested since the 11th century. Its imposing castle, perhaps the best conserved of Lunigiana, receives the visitors at their arrival in the village. The Malaspina castle exists at least from 1124, but the fortress was widened and restored between the end of the 14th and the beginning of the 15th century. The castle holds many legends and histories, some of them very frightening... One of them says that Dante Alighieri was a guest of the family Malaspina in this castle, during its exile: in the eastern tower, there is the so-called " room of Dante ". But the legend tells us about a ghost a princess, tortured and killed by her parents because she fell in love with a poor boy, and also about a bedroom where a lustful duchess killed her lovers, making them fall in a trap hidden in the pavement near the bed.
