The lighthouse

DSC_0287.

Livorno’s impressive lighthouse, Fanale dei Pisani. It is the oldest existing lighthouse in Italy still in use. Built in 1304 to replace an earlier one, it was destroyed by German retreating soldiers in 1944. Twelve years later the new lighthouse was built, after the original design using as many of the original stones as could be found. It has been said to be the most beautiful lighthouse in the world…
