The University of Pisa
The University of Pisa is a public institution with twenty departments and high-level research centres. Furthermore, the University has close relations with the CNR (National Research Centre), with many national and international cultural institutions and with the private sector.
The University of Pisa is one of the oldest in the country. It was officially established in 1343, although many believe its origins date back to the 11th century. The long list of its most famous faculty members and alumni includes Galileo Galilei, Nobel Prize winners such as Giosuè Carducci (Literature), Enrico Fermi (Physics) and Carlo Rubbia (Physics), and other people that have played an important role in Italian and international culture and research. Andrea Bocelli (singer), Mario Monicelli (film director), Umberto Saba (poet) and Antonio Tabucchi (writer) are all alumni of this top-ranking university.
