Social events in Pisa

When in Pisa for MET’s 2019 workshop day, why not do as the Pisans do? Join us for tours, visits, meals and wall walking. Workshop day attendees will receive a link to the sign-up form from the CPD chair.
(The meals are not included in the registration fee.)

Friday, 7 June
The workshop day is taking place in the Normale’s main building, Palazzo della Carovana, which has been in use since the 1200s. Restructured by Giorgio Vasari in the 16th century for the Knights of St. Stephen, it has housed the Normale since the 1840s.
Come and visit this building, with its fencing and weapons rooms and more, along with other historic buildings of the Scuola Normale mentioned by Dante in the Divine Comedy and located on the beautiful Piazza Cavalieri (Knights’ Square). Meeting point: Outside Palazzo della Carovana, Piazza dei Cavalieri 7.
