Castagneto Carducci is located in the province of Livorno in the middle of what is known as the Etruscan Coast. The territory remains flat on the coast and rises in gentle hills inland. The city's history is linked to the family Della Gherardesca. This name comes from a certain Gherardo lord of Pisa and Volterra in the tenth century that controlled many areas of the Maremma including the territory of Castagneto. Even when, in the fifteenth century, the city was annexed to the domains of Florence, the family of the counts Della Gherardesca kept the ancient privileges. They even managed to get rid of the name of the village incorporated along with other possessions of the neighboring in th Community of Gherardesca. Up to 800 descendants continued to claim the feudal privileges clashing with the determined opposition of the inhabitants. Were driven out only in 1849. The name Carducci was added in 1907 in honor of the famous poet who lived there his youth and his father, the most firm opponents of the counts. The ancient village once stood perched around the medieval castle and the Church of San Lorenzo dating back to before 1212 when it was already mentioned as a parish church. On the territory there are other valuable architectures including the towns of Bolgheri, Castiglioncello di Bolgheri and Donoratico. The first is at the end of an attractive avenue lined with cypress and marks the entrance to Bolgheri, the second is now a private residence and in the cellars is produced the wine Sassicaia, the third is now a ruin. Of great historical value is also the Fort of Marina di Castagneto Carducci built in the eighteenth century as an outpost of vigilance on the coast. The localities of Marina di Castagneto and Donoratico are two popular summer tourist resorts and the town of Bolgheri is famous for producing excellent red wine.
