The exhibition entitled “Sovrani nel giardino d’Europa: Pisa e i Lorena” (“Kings in the Eden of Europe: Pisa and the Lorraine”) focuses its attention on the exposition of artworks and cartographies which prove the mark that the reign of Lorraine left in history, and underlines the importance that Peter Leopold’s reign had on social and cultural growth of the grand duchy of Tuscany.

However, this exhibition’s attention focuses especially on the exposition of really important cartographic material, among which a printing of “Legge Criminale” (Criminal Law) stands out, the so-called Legge Leopoldina, which was promulgated by Peter Leopold Duchy of Lorraine, on 30th November 1786 to ratify the end of torture and of death penalty on the whole territory of the grand duchy of Tuscany.

We remember that this date deeply marked the history of the Grand duchy of Tuscany and of civil rights, because still today is reminded and celebrated by all the municipalities of the region with the Festa della Toscana (Tuscany’s Day).

Therefore, the event will put visitors in front of a rich and suggestive scenery. Just reflect on the fact that the museum, which now houses the exhibition, once was the Lorraine’s dwelling! But most of all, the event focuses the attention on Pisa, this extraordinary city of Versilia, which since ages is the emblem of culture and civilization.
