Best Photography Locations in Pisa

Pisa is known all over the world as one of the four maritime republics, one of those cities that in the middle ages of the Middle Ages, thanks to their strategic position, reached political and economic independence, which gave them a privileged position. Intensified the traffic in the Mediterranean, he collided several times with Saracen ships and succeeded in imposing himself also thanks to the alliance with the nearby Republic of Genoa. The power of the Maritime Republic of Pisa led her to conquer Corsica, all the Tyrrhenian Sea to the Balearic Islands. Thanks to his crusades, his power came to the Holy Land. Pisa reaches the pinnacle of its economic and political power between the twelfth and twelfth centuries, coming to conquer the western Mediterranean. His power led him to develop the artistic level of the city, which saw the formation of the Romanesque Pisan style, a style born thanks to the influences of the countries involved in their conquests, thus born of a blend of Western, Oriental and Islamic styles. Around 1270, what had previously been an alliance turned into an enemy faction

From this moment on, the power of the city of Pisa began to diminish, bringing the Republic of Pisa into a long decade. One of the most famous and prominent figures in the history of the Maritime Republic of Pisa is represented by Fibonacci, a famous literary mathematician, whose figure perfectly expresses the fruitful relationship between travel, culture, commerce and navigation, typical of the maritime republics. Today is a well known art city all over the world, thanks to its famous tower, the Pisa tower, nicknamed the “leaning tower” because it was built on an unstable terrain with time it began to slop down to assume the current position.

This singular and curious aspect invokes many tourists who are increasingly photographed on the tower. The Pisa Tower is part of a complex of monuments placed in the famous square of Miracles, so called by Gabriele D’Annunzio for the beauty of its monuments. The city of Pisa is also known for its curious rivalry with the nearby city of Livorno. The inhabitants of Livorno have a real antipathy towards their neighbors in Pisa. This rivalry has even led the people of Livorno to combine a saying: better a dead man at home than a pisano at the door. This rivalry has very ancient origins. Exactly when Pisa in the Middle Ages lost its power in the famous battle with Genoa. This decadence led to the power of the Pisan harbor in favor of those near Livorno. Hence the birth of the rivalry between the two maritime cities.
