Tuscany region is a former homeland of the advanced Etruscan civilization. Etruscans lived here freely for centuries. That is, until the day Roman Empire consumed the area around 351 BC. Once the empire fell, the region enjoyed a myriad of different rulers. However, after all that power-thirsty turmoil over the region, Tuscany managed to emerge as a political entity with its own rulers.
The region was so prosperous the fastest growing Tuscan cities slowly gained their independence and even formed independent republics! By the late Middle Ages, many cities including Arezzo, Pisa, Siena, Lucca, Pistoia, and, naturally, Florence became wealthy farming and trade hubs.
