A city of Miracoli

Unlike Florence, which is highly commercialized, Pisa is serene and laid-back. Known all over the world for its leaning tower (Torre pendente) and the Campo dei Miracoli, Pisa still stays the least-known of the Italian cities. A Rennaisance city that was once a wealthy seaport, it welcomes today tourists from all over the world with its Pisan-Romanesque style churches, the Campo Santo (the most beautiful cemetery in the world), trattorias, boutiques, and an atmosphere of cultured bohemia.

With a mural by Keith Haring Editors' Note

Chiesa di Sant'Antonio Abate was built in 1341, together with its annexed monastery. Unfortunately, the church and monastery were destroyed in World War II. The church was rebuilt according to the form it had at the end of the 18th century.

The main facade of Chiesa di Sant'Antonio Abate is a work in two-tone marble by Lupo and Giovanni di Gante, and Simone di Matteo da Siena. The church, however, is more popular today for its back facade, ornate with a mural by Keith Haring, Tuttomondo, which was the last public work of the artist in 1989, a few months before his death of AIDS.
