Piombino is a small seaport and village in Tuscany, Italy. It is a sea-town with classical and medieval origins coming from Populonia, an important Etruscan center for metallurgy and from the Maritime Republic of Pisa. Between the end of the 12th century and the first half of the 13th Piombino became the second most important harbour of the Maritime Republic. After the Napoleon period, the independent country disappears and in 1815 it is included in the Granduchy of Tuscany; nevertheless a general impulsus is observed in the economic democratic and building fields thanks to the reclamation of the Maremma plane which was decided in 1828 by Leopoldo 2nd. At the end of the 19th century some factories were born in Piombino: “the Società Anonia degli Alti Forni” and “Fonderia di Piombino” and “Magona D’Italia”; since then a strong iron activity marked the local development by changing the small sea-town into an industrial centre.
