Tuscany is an Italian region with an ordinary statute of 3,743,370 inhabitants, located in Central Italy, with the capital of Florence. The name is very ancient and derives from the ethnonym used by the Latins to define the land inhabited by the Etruscans: "Etruria", then turned into "Tuscia" and then into "Tuscany". Even the borders of today's Tuscany correspond in principle to those of ancient Etruria, which also included parts of the current regions of Lazio and Umbria, up to the Tiber. Until 1861 it was an independent entity, known as the Grand Duchy of Tuscany. Since then it has been part of the Kingdom of Sardinia, of the Kingdom of Italy and today of the Italian Republic. In the grand-ducal era it also had a hymn, composed by the Florentine Egisto Mosell and entitled La Leopolda. The regional festival, established in 2001, is celebrated on November 30th, in memory of the aforementioned day of 1786 which abolished the death penalty and torture in the Grand Duchy of Tuscany.
