Church
“Pisa is located in tuscany on the Arno near the Lingurian Sea. In the Middle Ages and early modern times, Pisa was a city-state and one of the maritime republics and today the capital of the province of Pisa. The landmark is the Campanile of the Cathedral, known as the Leaning Tower of Pisa.”

Church
“The Cathedral of Pisa, dedicated to Santa Maria Assunta, is the most significant example of Pisan Romanesque art. The architect Buscheto, merging the Classical tradition with elements of the Norman, Byzantine, Paleochristian and Arab art, gave birth to an original style that anticipated the Florentine Renaissance. The Duomo of Pisa is a tangible testimony of the prestige that the seafaring Republic reached in its heyday. Its construction began in 1064, in conjunction with the reconstruction of the Basilica of San Marco in Venice; It is probable that between the two cities a tacit competition was born on the creation of the most beautiful and sumptuous place of worship. ”
