According to Wikipedia, Viareggio is a city in northern Tuscany, on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea. With a population of over 62,000, it is the second largest city within the province of Lucca, after Lucca.

It is known as a seaside resort as well as being the home of the famous carnival of Viareggio (dating back to 1873), and its papier-mâché floats, which (since 1925), parade along the promenade known as "Passeggiata a mare", in the weeks of Carnival.

The city traces its roots back to the first half of the 16th century when it became the only gate to the sea for the State-Republic of Lucca. The oldest building in Viareggio, known as Torre Matilde, dates back to this time and was built by the Lucchesi in 1541 as a defensive fortification to fight the constant menace of corsair incursions.

Viareggio can be regarded as the “capital” of the Versilian Coast and a major tourist destination; in addition to this, Viareggio is also an active industrial and manufacturing centre: its shipbuilding industry has long been renowned around the world and its fishing and floricultural industries are still fundamental sectors to the city's economy.
