AntignanoThe Antignano Rione lies to the south of Livorno and has very ancient origins, its name appearing in documents dating from 1171. The village is probably even older, and for many centuries was isolated from Livorno, finally getting a road connection in the 19th century.
To defend the village from pirate attacks, Cosimo I had the Castello built, inside which stands one of Livorno’s oldest churches, Santa Lucia (1370). In the second half of the 1800s Antignano became a popular seaside resort and many villas were built along the seafront, most of which still stand today.
