Livorno (Italian: [liˈvorno]; English traditionally Leghorn /lɛɡˈhɔrn/ leg-hawrn, /ˈlɛɡɔrn/ leg-awrn), is a port city on the Ligurian Sea on the western coast of Tuscany, Italy.  It is the capital of the Province of Livorno, having a population of 159,431 residents on February 2015.
At the end of the 17th century, Livorno underwent a period of great town planning and expansion. Near the defensive pile of the Old Fortress, a new fortress was built, together with the town walls and the system of navigable canals through neighborhoods. After the port of Pisa silted up, its distance from the sea was increased and it lost its dominance in trade. Livorno took over as the main port in Tuscany.
