Lago di Puccini – Lake Massaciuccoli, Tuscany, Italy

Lago di Puccini is a nature reserve eleven miles from Lucca where Giacomo Puccini lived. He chose the lake as a home so that he could shoot its other inhabitants. Now however the lake is a quiet oasis and no matter how many statues there are of the composer he would no longer be welcome gun in hand.
