Giannutri (Italian pronunciation: [dʒanˈnuːtri]) is a small island in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Tuscany, Italy. It is the most southerly island of the Tuscan Archipelago and was known as Dianium by Romans and Artemisia, Αρτεμησία by Greeks.
The wild and rocky coast is interrupted by just two beaches, called the "Cala dello Spalmatoio" (on the north-east) and "Cala Maestra" (on the north-west). The island's features also include Maquis shrubland landscapes, and a Roman villa, Villa Domizia, also known as Villa Domitia. The remains of the Villa have been locked for almost 15 years and are planned to reopen Jul 2, 2015.
The island is part of the Tuscan Archipelago National Park, and the island belongs to the municipality of Giglio island and is mainly privately owned, with some areas owned by Italy’s Ministry of the Environment. The Villa Domitia and its annexes are under the control of Italy’s Ministry of Cultural Heritage.
