The main purpose of building Pisa Cathedral (Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta) in 1063 in a region outside the city defensive walls, was to reflect that Pisa is a secure place and did not need any particular defense.
The Cathedral was conceived by the renowned architect Buscheto as a statement that Pisa is a global city, due to its multinational merchants at the time. That’s why the architect incarnates an assorted variety of styles such as traditional, Romanesque, Byzantine and Islamic architecture.
