Castle
“La Pippola si trova nel comune di Fosdinovo e quindi il primo posto spetta al suo bellissimo castello dei Malaspina. Il Castello Malaspina di Fosdinovo si erge a nord della Toscana tra le Alpi Apuane e la costa del Mar Tirreno (Lerici, Cinque Terre, Versilia). La costruzione dell’imponente fortezza, innalzata a dominio e difesa del primitivo Castro di Fosdinovo, ebbe inizio nella seconda metà del XII secolo.”
