The history of Pisa

  The subsequent signoria of Piero Gambacorti seemed to inaugurate a period of relative peace and prosperity but his treacherous assassination (21.10.1392) by hired killers instigated by the Visconti, handed Pisa over the lords of Milan. In 1405, with base bargaining, they traded Pisa off to the Florentines for Money. The indignation and fierce resistance of the Pisans was weakened by a series of negative events: in the end the city had to surrender after a siege. This episode (09.10.1406) marked the irreversible fall of the glorious Maritime Republic. The subsequent advent of the French king Charles VIII aroused new hopes of independence in the city but the Florentines hastened to gather under the walls of the invincible rival and once more besieged it together with their allies. The indomitable resistance of the Pisans was so strong the Florentines even though of deviating the course of the Arno and called Leonardo da Vinci. But the idea remained on paper for Pisa, exhausted by famine, had to accept the Florentine signoria (20.10.1509). The Medici government of Cosimo I resulted in a reinassance in the city: university activity was rationalized and augmented, various public offices were organized, and, most important, the Order of the Knights of St. Stephen was instituted (1561), bringing new lymph to the Pisan maritime traditions, and taking part in the epic naval encounter of Lepanto (07.10.1571). In that circumstance the Christian fleet, the expression of a coalition of European powers (the papacy and Spain, Venice and the House of Savoy and still others), under the leadership of Don Juan of Austria, assisted by Gian Andrea Doria, Marcantonio Colonna, Ettore Spinola and
Sebastiano Veniero, Wiped out the maritime power of the Ottoman Turks capitained by Mehemet Ali.


Subsequent Medici rulers archieved important public works, such as the Aqueduct of Asciano (1601) and the Canal of the Navicelli - between Pisa and Livorno (1603). In the early 1630s a fierce plague raged through the city. With the advent of the Lorraine government which obtained the sovereignty of the Granduchy of Tuscany in 1738, as established by the treaty of Vienna, the rationalization of the cultural institutions began (the Scuola Normale was once more opened, 1847). The epic of Risorgimento also involved the citizens of Pisa: on the unforgettable day of Curtatone and Montanara (28.05.1848) the volunteers and the university students, who had cut off the tips of their university caps in order to aim their guns better, wrote one of the most glowing pages of the first war of independence. The year 1860 marked the plebiscite adhesion to the Kingdom of Italy: two years later Pisa bestowed a warm tribute on
Garibaldi who had been wounded on the Aspromonte. The most recent history of the city includes the devastating destruction of World War II and the barbarous episode of Kindu (ex Belgian Congo) where thirteen pilots of the 46th Air Brigade, on a humanitarian mission under the aegis of the United Nations, were massacred (11.11.1961). Five years later a disastrous flood of the Arno resulted in the collapse of the Ponte Solferino and the partial destruction of the Lungarno Pacinotti.
