Abstract (in English)

Elba Island is from a cultural point of view, particularly known for its monuments dating back to the Medicean grand ducal period (citadel of Portoferraio, founded in 1548) and for those of the napoleonic Reign (1814). Important signes witnessing the architectonical culture of the island are also the fortifications built by the Spaniards in the XVII century, to protect the sea-courses between Naples and Genoa. Among these fortifications, that of Longone (begun in 1603 and solemnly blessed on April 2, 1606) reflects the Italian school typology already used in Antwerp. The village below (Marina di Longone) introduces in this area of the island - still "virgin" the typology of the Spanish coast built-up area.
