Excellent Lucca piece. It brought back lots of good memories of my week there in the seventies.

Don't forget the Luigi Boccherini Conservatory, named after another of Lucca's famous musical sons. Boccherini (1743-1805) was a moster of the pre-classical sonata and wrote hundreds of pieces for string quintet and sextet.

Wish I had known about your book before my recent trip to Italy (Florence & Rome). The crowds in Florence at the major attractions were depressing. A day trip to Siena was OK but it too was very crowded. Lucca sounds like what we were looking for in Siena but did not find. Oh well, there is always next time.
