Donna Chinzica, reimpiego antico _ Via San. Martino (L. Corevi,Comune di Pisa)
On the façade of Casa Tizzoni, dating back to the 12th century, there is a bas-relief, part of a Roman sarcophagus from the 3rd century AD, commemorating a Pisan heroine. It is said that in 1004, on a dark night, only one woman was awake, because she was thinking of her lover, who had left like many others to conquer lands and treasures... From the top of a tower house, she saw lights in the distance: they were the torches of the Saracens, commanded by the pirate Mujāhid (Musetto), wanting to attack the city knowing that very few young and strong men were left to defend it. Kinzica de’ Sismondi ran down the streets, shouting fire, fire, up to the palace of the regents of the Republic (today Piazza dei Cavalieri) and began to ring the bells that woke up all remaining citizens. The Pisans thus managed to defend themselves and chase away the Saracens.
