The event was born from the collaboration between the cooperatives that manage the Walls of Pisa (Coopculture, Itinera and Promocultura) and top5viaggi. Information about www.muradipisa.it and the new free app Mura di Pisa. Coopculture, Cooperativa Itinera and Promocultura constitute the association of companies that manages the walkway at the height of the Ancient Walls of Pisa.
