The municipal territory of Fosciandora extends for 19,82 square kilometres on the left slope of the middle valley of the Serchio, in an elevated position dominated by the Appenninica chain on the shoulder of the settlement, and opposite the Alpi Apuane.

Formed, other than the Capital by five districts, the municipal territory has seen extremely active historic events. After having been part of the Lucca dominion, as shown in a citizens statute of 1308, in precision from the Vicariate of Castiglione di Garfagnana, it was divided in 1451 between the two bordering States: the centres of Lupinaia, Riana and Treppignano remaining with Lucca while those of Migliano, Fosciandora and Ceserana (castle belonging before the year 1000 to the Rolandinghi family) passed to Firenze and then in 1451 to the Duke of Ferrara Borso d’Este, thus constituting the Vicariate of the Terre Nuove. The unity of the territory was reconstituted in 1846 with the creation of the municipality of Fosciandora.
