THE VILLAGE The village is on the edge of the Ancient Etruscan Empire. It was born approximately between the end of the IV century and the beginning of the III century and it had the assignment to control the “Via Aurelia” and the bordering coast. The archeological excavations of the XVIII century revealed a huge necropolis, more than 350 graves, which proves the strong connection with Volterra and the prosperity of Castiglioncello during III and II century B.C. However from the I century B.C the village decayed rapidly, maybe because of the construction of the Via Aemilia Scauri which passed in the inland and cut out Castiglioncello from its big traffic. From the Roman age the village became a vacation destination, as many luxury villas testify. In the first Middle Ages the Pisa’s Counts Del Porto built a castel there and they called it Castiglione Mondiglio, Medieval name of the present Castiglioncello. During the XV century the powerful Medici family built a watchtower which was part of the fortification project to protect the coast from the several raids of the Saracen pirats. However the turistic chance began through the end of ‘800, when the art critic Diego Martelli built there his house, today called Pasquini Castle, where he continuing hosted the known painters group Macchiaioli: Abbati, Fattori, Sernesi, Borrani , Cabianca etc... who started the “Scuola di Castiglioncello" (Castiglioncello’s School). The Pasquini Castle has become a national datum point in the last years. It hosts important conventions about disarmament and childhood, also it is location of the Dance Festival and of the Literary Award “Castiglioncello Costa degli Etruschi”. Castiglioncello is located in a priviliged panoramic position, far from the biggest roads surrounded by nature. It still has luxury pine forest and spectacular cliffs. Since many years this little town is haunt of culture, relax and entertainment. Castiglioncello has become famous in the ‘60s as holiday destination of important v.i.p. as Alberto Sordi and Marcello Mastroianni, very important actors of the Italian Cinema and it is still today a very important holiday destination.
