Lecce city of Italy
 
Lecce,  is a historic city of 95,200 inhabitants in southern Italy, the capital of the province of lecce, the second province in the region by population, as well as one of the most important cities of Puglia. It is the main city of the Salentine Peninsula, a sub-peninsula at the heel of the Italian Peninsula and is over 2,000 years old.
Because of the rich Baroque architectural monuments found in the city, Lecce is commonly nicknamed "The  Florence of the South". The city also has a long traditional affinity with Greek culture going back to its foundation; the Messapii  who founded the city are said to have been Cretans in Greek records. To this day, in the Grecia Salentine a group of towns not far from Lecce, the griko language is still spoken.
In terms of industry the "Lecce stone" is the city's main export, because it is very soft and malleable, thus suitable for sculptures. Lecce stone is a kind of limestone. Lecce is also an important agriculture centre, chiefly for its olive oil and wine production, as well as an industrial centre specialising in ceramic production.
