One of the main squares in Marina is dedicated to a Pisan artist, known above all for the graphic art of engraving: Giuseppe Viviani (1898 - 1965). The coast was one of his favourite subjects and the artist loved this place so much that, on his death and following his wishes, the original plates of his works were thrown into the sea off the coast of Marina di Pisa. They called him, as he himself called himself, the 'Poor Prince of Boccadarno': poor because he only achieved fame when he was about fifty years old. Viviani's art combines a pure, melancholic and decadent vision with a great love for life itself, it is made of air, water and light. The artist uses a linear and essential sign with a refined technical skill, creating a world tinged with deep emotion and crossed by metaphysical openings rich in allusions, suggestions and meanings.
