Pianosa and Capraia don't exist in Tuscany only

An interesting fact concerning two of the islands in the Tuscan Archipelago.

Apart from Elba, the islands that are part of the Tuscan Archipelago are Giglio (21,2 square km) - Capraia (19,3) - Montecristo (10,4) - Pianosa (10,25) - Giannutri (2,6) - Gorgona (2,23).

The most northern island is Gorgona, opposite Livorno, while the most southern one is Giannutri, just below Monte Argentario, opposite Montalto di castro in the region of Lazio.

The Tremiti Archipelago is north of the Gargano peninsula, opposite the coasts of Puglia, Believe it or not, two of the islands here have the same name as two that are in the Tuscan Archipelago: Pianosa and Capraia. In short, the regions of Tuscany and Puglia have two islands with the exact same name!

It must be said however that the islands of Pianosa and Capraia in Puglia are much smaller than their "sisters" in Tuscany, because the two together don't even make up a total area of 1 square kilometre (Pianosa measures only 700 metres x 250 metres).
