Vorrei presentarvi la mia amica Emma, un’insegnante di lingua italiana che vive a Pisa. Ho avuto l’opportunità di incontrare Emma qualche anno fa a Roma e insieme abbiamo esplorato il ghetto romano e poi cenato in una deliziosa trattoria. Quella sera abbiamo cenato con carciofi e pasta alla carbonara e bevuto un ottimo vino rosso. Mentre stavamo mangiando, il proprietario del ristorante si è seduto a un tavolo accanto alle casse peeling e casse di carciofi e felicemente unito la nostra conversazione di volta in volta.
I would like to present my friend Emma, an Italian language teacher living in Pisa. I had the opportunity to meet up with Emma a few years ago in Rome and together, we explored the Roman ghetto and later had dinner in a delightful trattoria. That evening we dined on artichokes and pasta carbonara and drank a very good red wine. As we ate, the restaurant owner sat at a table nearby, peeling crates and crates of artichokes and he happily joined in our conversation from time to time.

It is situated on the sea and is the site of the famous Camposanto complex composed of the Piazza dei Miracoli, the Duomo, the baptistry and the leaning tower, all began in 1174 and were completed in the 14th century. Pisa was the birthplace of the scientist Galileo Galilei and is home to one of Italy’s major universities, which has a history going back to the 12th century. It is also the home of la Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa, founded by Napoleon in 1810.
