A night-time walk with video projections to discover Etruscan and Roman Pisa with an unprecedented itinerary in the historic centre that touches on corners of the city never seen before. Acquario della Memoria proposes 'NERONE Night Experience', a new appointment with the walking cinema, which accompanies 'Mura di Pisa Night Experience', the routes on the high walkway. Three dates: Sunday 4, Sunday 11 and Sunday 18 September, departure at 9 p.m. from Porta San Zeno (outside the Walls) and arrival at Bagni di Nerone. The initiative follows the three evenings last July, which were sold out.
The route starts from images and stories of Etruscan Pisa to arrive at the Roman period through historical sources, aerial shots integrated with 3D reconstructions, animated shadows, and historical iconography. The various stages will unveil the mysteries of the Roman city such as the lost amphitheatre, the tales of ancient travellers and scholars from Rutilio Namaziano to Strabone, the ancient relationship with water starting from the river Auser, the life and workings of the thermal establishment with the underworld of the wood-burning furnaces fed by slaves, the legend of San Torpé that links Nero, St Peter's, the Villa of Corliano and the ancient and powerful family of the Venulei.
The tour will give the opportunity to discover previously undiscovered corners such as the green path connecting Via San Zeno and Via del Brennero through a small door in the Walls, touching the site of the lost amphitheatre and the extraordinary garden of the Carmelite friars.

The project was made possible thanks to the contribution of the Fondazione Pisa and the Municipality of Pisa, in collaboration with Mappa Lab, a team of archaeologists from the Department of Civilisations and Forms of Knowledge of the University of Pisa. The project is realised thanks to the teamwork of Acquario della Memoria: Lorenzo Garzella, Nicola Trabucco, Serena Tonelli, Sofia Davila, Sonia Cerrai, and Simone Sacco. Other contributors include Veronica Cardelli, Valerio Torresi, Anna Dameri, archaeologist Antonio Campus, 3D artist Stefano Bertelli and writer Sergio Costanzo. The voices accompanying the stories are by Giulia Solano and Paolo Giommarelli. The tours will be accompanied by guides from the Impegno e Futuro cooperative. The initiative is aimed at enhancing the archaeological excavations and the Baths and aims to rediscover a precious corner of Pisa in view of the restoration and relaunching of the Bastione del Parlascio.
