There is mention of Lugliano ( Luniano as it is also known ) in a document archived by the Arch Bishop of Lucca on the 10th of July 891, with which the Bishop Gherardo declares the value of a property and adjacent land at 26 pieces of silver. The property belonged to the church- S. Frediano.

Another entry found in the “Lucchesi Memories” of 13 June 901 declares two relevant farmhouses of the same church.


The political rule of the “Castellodi Lugliano” seems to have rested with the Municipality of Lucca which was given a diploma in June 1244 for it’s acclaimed power.

Lugliano preserves an ancient appearance and architecture deep within it’s walls. You will note medieval structured houses set amongst urbanistic systems from high up.

Also located in this town is a fountain, just outside the doors of Palazzo d’Acarto which was built around 1820 by two Englishmen who spent their holidays in Lugliano
