Mascagni Terrace Virtual Tour

The Mascagni Terrace is characterized by two elements: the 4100 columns that form the balustrade and the floor in black and white tiles that form a sort of chessboard. The current beauty of the Terrace is due to the complete restoration ended in the late '90s. The works, required after the serious damage over the years by the sea storms, allowed a complete usability by the inhabitants of Leghorn and enable tourists to admire a unique work for position, size and abundance of greenery.

The birth of what we admire today is the result of the destruction of the old urban organization wanted by the livornese Costanzo Ciano, that led to the destruction of the old districts to accommodate monumental buildings typical of the period. The construction and the arrangement of the beautiful Seafront and of the Mascagni Terrace is an elegant urban solution as well as an enviable belvedere.

Very characteristic is the Gazebo of the Music, a sort of little round temple, with the roof shaped like a crown supported by a series of circular columns.
