Field trips

Field trip 1 - Pisa City  (2nd March)

This field trip aims to illustrate the stone materials used to build the main monuments of the city, and the past and current relationship between the city and water. The past activities of the city were related to the main river and paleo rivers of this area (Arno, Serchio, Auser). The oldest monuments, in the northern area of the city, were built thanks to the use of materials from the Serchio River and the Auser River (a paleo river). With the disappearance of the Auser River, the second main building phase of the history of Pisa began. The city expanded towards the south thanks to the presence of the Arno River. The two phases are characterized by different historic periods but also by a different use of stone materials coming from Pisa and Tuscany.
The tour will be guided by Dr. Stefano Pagnotta, researcher of the Earth Sciences Department of the University of Pisa.

Field trip 2 - Massaciuccoli Lake (3rd March)

The Massaciuccoli Lake and the surrounding marshy areas are amongst the most important wetlands in Tuscany. However, this area is affected by several environmental issues linked to human activities and climate change. The Department of Earth Sciences of the University of Pisa has been involved in different projects in this area and has recently developed a research laboratory along the shores of the lake. During this fieldtrip it will be possible to discuss about these issues on site with expert researchers.
The tour will be guided by Prof. Monica Bini and Prof. Giovanni Zanchetta, professors of the Earth Sciences Department of the University of Pisa.

The Massaciuccoli Lake is about 30 minutes’ drive from the Department of Earth Sciences.
A maximum of 20 participants will be transported with the vehicles of the department while other participants who would like to join the group should take their own vehicles. Detailed driving directions are available on the Logistics page.
