MEDITERRANEAN TUSCANY: PISA AND LIVORNO

Saturday, November 11

Cost: 80€



This Field Learning activity allows students to explore both Medieval and Renaissance Tuscany, visiting two unique cities, Pisa and Livorno. The city of Pisa is host to priceless treasures, like the Piazza dei Miracoli, with its world-famous Leaning Tower, the Cathedral and the Baptistery. Livorno is the most important port city in Tuscany, situated on the western coast of the region. It is also the youngest city in Tuscany. At the end of the 16th Century, the Grand Duke Ferdinando de Medici founded a new harbour, on the site of a small fisherman’s village. Within a short time, Livorno became a cosmopolitan city, thanks to laws (Leggi Livornine) which guaranteed freedom of religion, thus attracting religious communities from all over the Mediterranean. Just one example, Livorno was the first city where the Jewish community was not forced to live in a ghetto, leaving significant marks on the culture and cuisine of the city.
