6 Pavia

PowerPoint Presentation:

Once known as the city of 100 towers, Pavia today has fine Romanesque and Medieval buildings, a castle, and a vibrant historic center

PowerPoint Presentation:

The medieval towers still shape the town skyline. The main clusters still rising are rallied in Piazza Leonardo da Vinci, Via Luigi Porta , and Piazza Collegio Borromeo

PowerPoint Presentation:

Nobel families built the medieval towers to symbolize their power. Today only a few towers remain

PowerPoint Presentation:

The most important ruins are undoubtedly the three towers in the Leonardo da Vinci square, with the Torre del Maino measuring 51 metres high

PowerPoint Presentation:

Historical masonry towers, in all their forms - bell towers, civic towers, tower-houses and the watch towers of city walls are found throughout the entire Italian peninsula, where they represent a distinctive feature of many of its historical centers and, in some cases, its countryside. In Roman and medieval times, some have had great strategic and military importance

PowerPoint Presentation:

Pavia is on the train line from Milan to Genoa. There is bus service to Linate Airport and the nearby Certosa di Pavia as well as cities and towns in Lombardy. The train and bus stations are in the west part of town and linked to the historic center by Corso Cavour. It is easy to walk in Pavia's compact center but there is local bus service, too.

PowerPoint Presentation:

More than 100 medieval towers once enveloped the old town; the trio on Piazza di Leonardo da Vinci is all that remains today

PowerPoint Presentation:

The great variety of uses reserved for masonry towers has translated into a considerable variety of constructive configurations. Their heights vary from the 60-70 meters of the 11 th -13 th century towers built by the powerful political associations with defensive functions in mind (but also serving as symbols of the power and wealth of their aristocratic family owners) to the 20-30 meters of the tower houses, which were widely popular ( Binda , L., Anzani , A., Mirabella Roberti, G., 1997a. The failure of ancient towers: problems for their safety assessment)

PowerPoint Presentation:

Pavia's food specialties are zuppa pavese and risotto alla certosina , created by the monks of the Certosa di Pavia . In Pavia, as in much of Lombardy, you will find many risotto (rice) dishes, beef, cheeses, and baked goods. Frogs are also common in Pavia, especially in the spring when they are gathered from the rice fields

PowerPoint Presentation:

Minerva, the Roman goddess of wisdom and sponsor of arts, trade, and defense, was born from the godhead of Jupiter with weapons. From the 2nd century BC onwards, the Romans equated her with the Greek goddess Athena. She was the virgin goddess of music, poetry, medicine, wisdom, crafts, commerce, weaving, magic. Her statue in Pavia, near the train station, is considered as an important landmark in the city.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Madonna di Piazza Grande, requested by the people of Pavia, was put in place in 1604 in the heart of the city on the outside of the town hall building and was regarded with special devotion by the local people and above all by merchants and artisans

PowerPoint Presentation:

Made from rare, highly resistant materials (including sand from the river Ticino) the Madonna remained on the outside of the Broletto building for nearly three centuries, until 1872, at which time, in a climate of strong social conflict, it was taken to the crypt of the nearby cathedral

PowerPoint Presentation:

In the 1980s a Pavia local, Professoressa Anna Maria De Paoli Garofoli , sparked renewed interest in the story of the Madonna of Piazza Grande by the press, the authorities and the local people of Pavia, 7,800 of whom asked for it to be returned to its original location. In 1992 the statue, perfectly restored by the spontaneously established Committee for the Madonna of Piazza Grande, was solemnly moved to the cathedral and shown to the city

PowerPoint Presentation:

On the 21st of December 2002 the Madonna was returned to the Broletto , giving back to the city a work of great beauty and extraordinary significance for the people of Pavia

PowerPoint Presentation:

Borromeo College

PowerPoint Presentation:

Borromeo College was built by will of St. Charles Borromeo , planned by architect Pellegrino Pellegrini , named Tibaldi , and constructed in the years 1564 - 1586. Its mass can be well distinguished by those who watch Pavia from the other bank of the river Ticino
