NERONE NIGHT EXPERIENCE 2024 - cinematic night tours to discover Roman Pisa. 

A special evening organised by Acquario della Memoria with the support of the Fondazione Pisa and the Municipality of Pisa, and in collaboration with Mappa Lab, a team of archaeologists from the Department of Civilisation and Forms of Knowledge of the University of Pisa. Among the contributors to this initiative is the writer Sergio Costanzo.

The route will start 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. In the various stages the mysteries of the Roman city and the lost amphitheatre; the stories about the city by ancient travellers and scholars (from Rutilio Namaziano to Strabone); the ancient relationship with water (the river Auser, the ports, the aqueduct, the baths); the life and workings of the baths (with the underworld of the wood-burning furnaces fed by the slaves; the 'sudatio', the only remaining room, (probably the smallest space in the complex); the legend of St. Torpé, which links Nero, St. Peter, the Villa of Corliano and the ancient and powerful family of the Venulei.

The initiative is also aimed at enhancing the archaeological excavations, the thermal baths and rediscovering a precious and often neglected corner of Pisa. It is the beginning of a path that aims to revitalise this corner of the city, and is linked to the restoration and revitalisation projects, also in terms of a museum, of the neighbouring Bastione del Parlascio, undertaken by the Administration with the support of the Fondazione Pisa.
