Lunigiana covers an area from the Apennines to the Magra river, belonging in part to Tuscany and in part to Liguria. It takes its name from Luni, a Roman town, perhaps pre-dated by an Etruscan settlement, which became the principal urban center on the northern Tuscan coast.
Some contend that the name Luni refers to the moon, whilst others maintain, that the region was populated by those who worshiped the moon. The symbol of contemporary Lunigiana is a crescent moon held in the claw of a bear.
