Lunigiana is a historical territory in what are now the regions of Tuscany and Liguria. The territory is in the provinces of Liguria and Massa Carrara. It takes its name from Luni, a Roman town, perhaps pre-dated by an Etruscan settlement, which became the principal urban center on the northern Tuscan coast. Luni, founded by the Romans in 177 BC, was a flourishing city and harbour. Today, it includes a site of significant Roman ruins and a modern museum.
