Aulla is a town in the province of Massa Carrara, set in the Lunigiana area. The town, whose place name probably derives from "lacus", was partially destroyed during the Second World War.
The real consolidation of the town dated back to the realisation of the Abbey of San Caprasio by Adalberto, marquis of Tuscany. It was built in 884 and only the semicircular apse and a fragment of a carved stone remain of the original structure.
Towards the end of XIII the century the territory passes under the jurisdiction of the Bishop of Luni, for being then disputed from Pisa, Lucca, Genova and the Malaspina family
The Fortress of the Brunella is the symbol of the town of Aulla: it is a XVI century military building, built by Giovanni dale Bande Nere in a very strategic position, ion order to defend the valley. Today it hosts the Natural history museum of the Lunigiana.
