A comprehensive survey of political and ecclesiastical institutions, economy, settlements, population and linguistic varieties in an area of great strategic importance considering its geographical position and communication systems. The region was marked by conflicting interests of towns like Lucca, whose diocese owned a great deal of this land until the early 17th century, Pisa and then Florence who finally attained supremacy around 1340.
