Camigliano is located in the beautiful area around Lucca. It is a small village that stands out thanks to its many historic villas - particularly noting the beautiful Villa Torrigiani.
Despite its small size, the town has a restaurant that also serves pizzas, a church : Chiesa di San Michele Arcangelo dating from the year 1071 and a chapel that is in disrepair. However, the municipality is also known in Italy for being the first to recycle 100% of their waste.
In Via del Gomberaio 3 lies this luxurious and scenographically interesting and impressive villa which was built in the latter half of the 16th century. The villa is built in baroque style inspired by the architecture of Versailles and is unique for its style of Tuscany. It differs from other magnificent period villas due to the design of the facade which consists of a variety of materials and details. The villa is surrounded by a large park which was built in the 1650's.
