The Foreign Nations of Livorno

Formerly the Scottish Presbyterian church of St Andrew, now home to the WaldensiansFormerly the Scottish Presbyterian church of St Andrew, now home to the WaldensiansIn order to populate his new city, in 1591-2 Grand Duke of Tuscany Ferdinando de’ Medici passed a series of laws, known as the Leggi Livornine, primarily intended to invite Sephardi Jews fleeing persecution in Spain and Portugal to settle in the city. The laws guaranteed religious tolerance, as well as financial benefits to those who set up business in Livorno, thus encouraging foreign merchants from all over Europe to settle here.
