The neo-classical Villa FabbricottiVilla Fabbricotti is Livorno's largest and most beautiful park. It is a popular afternoon meeting place for families and locals in general. Standing in the centre is the 18th-century mansion house, modified over the centuries and remodelled in the neo-classical style in the 1860s by Vincenzo Micheli for British Merchant Thomas Lloyd to whom the villa was sold in 1868. In 1881 it was purchased by Bernardo Fabbricotti, a businessman who dealt in Carrara marble. In 1936 Fabbricotti sold the villa to the Livorno town council.
