Pisa Cathedral Celebrates 950-Year Anniversary

To mark the 950th anniversary since construction began on the Pisa Cathedral, the Opera della Primaziale Pisana, the authority that oversees the Duomo Complex, is organizing a series of initiatives, starting from the restoration of the apse and the façade of the Museum of Sinopie.

The project is intended to spotlight once again the entire Christian itinerary as originally devised almost 1,000 years ago: from the Baptistry to the Cathedral, to the Leaning Tower, the Camposanto Monumentale and the Ospedale Nuovo di Santo Spirito.

The complex is known as Piazza dei Miracoli and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.

Later this year, a special edition of the sacred music event "Anima mundi" will take place.
