History Domus Mazziniana Pisa
Giuseppe Mazzini was a patriot and politician and one of the founders of the Italian State. The building where he died was declared a national monument on March 20, 1910.
During bombing raids in the Second World War, the palace was almost completely destroyed, and the original furniture was also lost. However, other mementoes from the time of the Italian Risorgimento had been brought to safety before.
The present building, which was inaugurated in 1952 by the then President Luigi Einaudi, is therefore a post-war reconstruction. Since then, it has been the seat of an institute dedicated to Mazzini, which researches and disseminates his ideas.
The Palazzo Nathan-Rosselli is also the seat of a museum that deals with everything related to Mazzini and the Risorgimento.
