The visit to city museums and the discovery of the medieval walls
The Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna has activated collaborations with the Opera della Primaziale Pisana to visit the architectural and museum complex of the Duomo; with Palazzo Blu, a center for temporary exhibitions and cultural activities run by the Pisa Foundation, to visit current exhibitions; and with the City of Pisa to walk on the medieval city walls that encircle the city center.
"I would like to welcome the applicants and candidates who will participate in the competition," comments Sabina Nuti, rector of the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, "and to thank the entities that collaborate with us each year for the success of this initiative. 'Pisa welcomes talent' wants to convey the awareness that this city can represent a unique opportunity for growth and learning. Pisa is the city of science and research with the highest concentration of researchers and students in Italy. The Three Universities (University of Pisa, Scuola Normale Superiore and Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna), together with the largest research area of the CNR, the Azienda Ospedaliero Universitaria, the Monasterio Foundation and the National Institute of Nuclear Physics, create a stimulating environment where young talents, scholars and scholars meet, work and contribute to the scientific growth and development of our country."
