Lucca, the capital

Because of its cosmopolitan vocation, due to a continual bond with the world of business, commerce and culture, Lucca has never had a simple “provincial” dimension. With the Congress of Vienna (1815), Lucca was made into a duchy (Ducatus Lucensis) under the sovereignty of Maria Luisa of Bourbon and then her son Carlo Lodovico. Lucca became the capital and remained so until it was passed over to the Grand Duchy of Tuscany in 1847.
