Pisa's Important Role In Education

When I visited Pisa back in 1990, it was explained to me that this 'sleepy' but once important city-state in the Middle-Ages and Renaissance, was a strong university town. 

It's obviously critical to have a strong University system in place in order to ensure a country continues to advance in various disciplines.

Two such highly ranked and reputable schools are The Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa (which has embraced nano-technology studies) along with Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies make up the Pisa University system.

The list of notable alumni (which includes Andrea Bocelli, Enrico Fermi, and Galileo) is impressive.
