Histoire


De 1030 à 1249 Luri fut le fief des Da Campo di Luri. Acquis en 1249 par le génois Ansaldo da Mare. Il s'intégra au fief Da Mare de San Columbano di Rogliano jusqu'à la conquête génoise de 1592. Une "consulte" eut lieu à Luri en 1762, où les responsables du Cap Corse décidèrent seulement alors de se rallier à Pascal Paoli. L'accès difficile de la vallée mit relativement les habitants à l'abri des incursions barbaresques au cours des siècles. Sénèque, selon une légende tenace, aurait été exilé à la tour qui porte son nom.
Luri a connu depuis le début 19ème une diminution de son activité agricole et de sa démographie, moins sensible toutefois que dans la plupart des autres communes du Cap Corse. La visite des hameaux et sites* composant la commune se fait en partant de la corniche littorale vers I'intérieur. Piazza : centre communal dans un environnement verdoyant*. A la fin 18ème, Piazza disputa à Rogliano le titre de capitale du Cap Corse, mais c'est cette dernière commune qui fut choisie.
