About Liguria

Liguria is a region of Italy in the north-western part of the country. Genoa is the capital of the region. Its land is crossed by the Alps and the Apennines mountain ranges, and it's about the same size as the old Republic of Genoa. You can find France (Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur) to the west, Italy (Piemont) to the north, and Emilia-Romagna and Tuscany to the east). There are 1,557,533 people in the city. It is on the Ligurian Sea. A part of the Alps?Mediterranean Euroregion is this area.

The name Liguria came before Latin and isn't clear where it came from. There are Latin adjectives that show the original root of the name, ligusc-. In the Latin name, ligusc- was shortened to -sc-, which later turned into the letter "r" in Liguria. Ancient Greek:, which is written as: Lgus, which means "a Ligurian, a person from Liguria," is the name of the place where it is found. The name comes from the ancient Ligures people, but the area they lived in was much bigger than the current administrative region. It included all of North-west Italy south of the Po river, as well as south-eastern France.

If you look at names like Etruscan, Euskadi, and Gascon, you can see that the formant'sc' ('sk') is also found in names like these. Because these are all coastal areas, the shared formant may be a sign that they all came from pre-Indo-European, maritime peoples, and/or that the Tyrsenian and Vasconic language families were related to each other. There are some problems with this argument, though, because the name "Etruscan" is a modern exonym. Rasenna, or Rana, was the name used by the Etruscans to describe themselves. When this changed in Greek, it became Tursnoi and Tyrrrnoi. In Latin, it became Etruria and Tuscia, which is why Tuscany or Toscana is called Tuscany or Toscana today!
