Paolo Guinigi

Paolo Guinigi, Lord of Lucca

While Paolo Guinigi was Lord (1400-1430) Lucca experienced some important urban and cultural changes. Paolo’s great project can still be seen today in the stately buildings on via Guinigi and via Sant’Andrea, the impressive Villa Guinigi and the stately summer residence of Matraia.
