Pietrasanta is the perfect combination of worldliness and contemplation. At this location, the promenade with its fun and entertainment coexist in harmony with the quiet Versiliana Park, making Pietrasanta one of Versilia’s gems a and a great starting point for all.
Since ancient times, Pietrasanta has been competed for. Its strategic location on the Via Francigena and the inhabitants’ tradition in the processing of bronze and marble have made it a center coveted by many, even though the Lombards left their legacy deeper into the territory. This city is mainly frequented by marble sculptors par excellence, but it is also the muse of many artists for its natural beauties such as the Versiliana Park. This famous pine forest literally charmed the poet Gabriele D'Annunzio so much so as to inspire one of his most famous poems, "The rain in the pine forest." In this idyllic setting D'Annunzio entertained his literary friends, talking about poetry and love; this circle of friends has since evolved into the "Versiliana Festival" which has been held for over 35 years. D’Annunzio’s gatherings in the park and villa gave rise to the international theater festival enriched by a series of side events such as the "Caffè," an interactive cultural event with the public who can attend the debates of leading figures of tradition, culture, politics, and sports,with questions posed directly to the guests.
