Degli Statuti

This room is so called because it was the place where once the civil rules were decided and then declared in the public square.

It was a very safe and peaceful place similar to the one where the statutes were stored. The statutes were like sacred texts, symbols of the local freedom.

Vezzano’s statutes were – together with those of the nearby Sarzana – the most organized of the Lunigiana and could well regulate the administrative local life until the Napoleonic age.
