Uzzano Castello is an idyllic place. Time has stood still here.
Uzzano was not discovered by tourism and therefore it’s the mirror of authentic Tuscany. That’s why I love to walk around here, to lose myself in the small authentic streets and to enjoy the breathtaking panorama.

The history of Uzzano is very old and long.

By the 3rd century B.C. was the border between the Etruscan and Ligurian population, later this was the area that bordered Rome and the colonies of Pistoria (Pistoia) and Luca (Lucca).

Since the 6th century B.C. One of the most important roads of the Etruscans, who came from the Pisan Valdarno and the Ligurian Lunigiana, was situated near today’s Uzzano.

In the 3rd century B.C. This area passed into the possession of Rome, like the whole area between the colonies of Luke (Lucca) and Pistoriae (Pistoia).

Christianity was brought to Valdinievole by St. Paulinus, Bishop of Lucca, and his followers and it’s believed that the area of Uzzano was part of the Diocese of Lucca from the beginning and remained under its jurisdiction until 1519.

Benefiting from the passage of Via Cassia “Clodia”, an important road connecting Via Cassia “Maior” with Lucca, Uzzano became an important defensive fortress.
Since the 10th century AD, the place became a feudal castle with the “Lords of Uzzano, Montichiari and Vivinaia” a powerful noble family from Lucca who owned numerous properties in the area.

From the middle of the 12th century, Uzzano became a rural parish serving the city of Lucca.

The first official document is a scroll describing the conclusion of an agreement between the cities of Pescia, Uzzano and Vivinaia (today’s Montecarlo), dating back to 1202.

The influence of Lucca over Uzzano remained until 1339, when the whole of Valdinievole fell under Florentine rule.

The village was given a new statute that provided for the presence of a mayor and became part of the Vicariate of Valdinievole and Valleriana, based in Pescia.

In 1420 Uzzano lost the city traffic jam and was granted first to Pescia and later to Buggiano.

Between the 15th and 18th centuries, there was a hard fight for autonomy. Today Uzzano is again an autonomous municipality with 4.995 inhabitants (2020).
