“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. ”

“The Sinopie They were the preparatory drafts of the frescoes. The name derives from the Black Sea city of Sinope, from which came the red earth used for drafts. Following the bombing of the monumental cemetery, and the consequent fire of the roof, many frescoes that covered the walls were dangerous. The only way to preserve them was to proceed with their detachment, through the technique of "tearing", which led to the discovery of the underlying "sinopie" the preparatory drawings.”

“The last wonder of the field of miracles is the Monumental Cemetery of Pisa, a sacred place because The Crusaders brought here the Holy Land taken to the mountain Golgotha, just outside Jerusalem. The most illustrious Pisan characters are buried there and there are works of art from the Etruscan, Roman and medieval times to masterpieces of the last century. Simple walls of white marble guard the graves of the deceased, the most prominent personalities were buried in the central garden or in the Roman sarcophagi, while under the Arches rested less prestigious personalities. ”

Establishment
“The baptistery of Pisa is another of the buildings that form the monumental complex of Piazza del Duomo (or Piazza dei Miracoli). Its construction, begun in 1153, is the work of the architect Diotisalvi, as evidenced by an inscription on an internal pillar, but many Sculptures of the façade were made by Nicola Pisano and his son Giovanni. Always by Nicola Pisano the Pulpit Presenting scenes from the life of Christ and subjects depicting the virtues: all masterpieces that testify how their creator was one of the main precursors of the Renaissance. The outer dome only covers the inner circle of the pillars and probably The lack of money was the reason why it is made up of different materials.”
