Republica Di Lucca : V. M.  Coronelli

click here to view a large version in a separate window

The Republic of Lucca, now part of northern Tuscany. Located on the north-west coast of Italy, it was renowned for its silk weaving. A fine example of the work of the leading Italian map-maker of the period. The word "Libertas" is clearly seen on two banners. The Republic of Lucca had a strong history of marinating its independence, alongside of Venice and Genoa, and painted the word Libertas on its banner until the French Revolution in 1789. Ironically, after the French invasion of 1805, Lucca was ruled by Elisa Bonaparte, Napoleon's sister.
