Gabriele D’Annunzio effectively condenses the wonder and admiration that catch whoever visits the Duomo Square of Pisa.

The Opera della Primaziale Pisana (O₽A) is a non-profit organisation which was established in order to oversee the first works for the construction of the monuments in the Piazza del Duomo, subject to its own charter which includes the protection, promotion and enhancement of its heritage, in order to pass the religious and artistic meaning onto future generations.

«L’Ardea roteò nel cielo di Cristo, sul prato dei Miracoli.»
Gabriele d’Annunzio in Forse che sì forse che no (1910)

THE MONUMENTS

The square of the Cathedral of Pisa represents the best example of the Pisa Romanesque style through its magnificence and perfection, a harmonious fusion of classical, early Christian, Lombard and eastern motifs.
The buildings maintain a stylish unity.
The Cathedral, the Tower, the Baptistery and the Camposanto represent together the allegory of human life.
The Sinopie Museum hosts the big preparatory drawings recovered beneath the frescoes decorating the Camposanto and the Opera del Duomo Museum, at the moment closed for a restoration, will show the development of Pisa art and the great Middle Ages sculpture with a new and evocative museum path.

Alfred Einsten, W.A. Mozart, His Character, His Work, Oxford University Press, 1962
