Starting discussion[edit]

I can't believe that this page has been never discussed... There are two possibilities:

  • Wikipedia users love Pisa and have always done a good work in its entry
  • Wikipedia users are so ignorant that they cannot even discuss about Pisa.

Pisa Cathedral and it's Museum[edit]

There is no link for the Cathedral in Churches sectiion, which seems very strange. How about the Griffin displayed there in it's museum ?

Right bank[edit]

Pisa is a city in Tuscany, central Italy, on the right bank of the mouth of the Arno River on the Ligurian Sea.

Isn't it on both banks of the Arno? Fph (talk) 13:20, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Doesn't Pisa originate from the ancient Greek city of Pisa (near Olympia) in Greece? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:17, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

The article answers this question now. Pisa was an Etruscan city. It fell into the "unknown" category before the sources used by the classical authors so like everyone else they guessed and made up stories. The terrain is not the same as it was in ancient times; I mean, it is the same type, but the exact configuration has changed. Right bank? I got no problem with that but strictly speaking currently it is both banks, predominantly right bank. Who know was it was in ancient times.Dave (talk) 11:59, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

Article Assessment by Botteville[edit]

This is a fairly thorough article I would say. However, it lacks the usual apparatus - mainly the inline notes. For the prose - well, I've seen some of this somewhere else, but I can't say exactly where. The process of setting up the inline notes should uncover it. Pisa is pretty well covered on the Internet. Most of this is presented I am sure by the Italian article. We aren't Italian. It needs to be verifiable in English. For the content, once the archaeologists were clued to the presence of the Etruscans they went to work in Pisa so there is more to be said of them. I suggest a prehistory section.Dave (talk) 11:51, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

Advertising on WP[edit]

PS. I just noticed - the external links are mainly advertising. I really don't know what the status of WP is regarding advertising any more. Wales advertises WP as commercial free. That is NOT true by any stretch of the imagination. In this article we have some blatent advertising. What do you want to do, here, Wales? The rules seems to say no advertising and everything in "cite web." We got a real problem with those rules, which apply to some and not others. But, I suppose it is only a problem to people like me, who want to take what people say at face value. Someone else might twist this around so it is NOT advertising, only expression of the basic facts concerning hotels and lodgings and what not. I don't have the time to fight you on it. It seems to me most of those have to come out and rest go in "cite web." What do you think? Whatever you think, put it here, don't bother me with it, I'm busy.Dave (talk) 15:06, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

One minor remark about Pisa article: In the geographical map, the city looks inside the sea, while it's about 10 Km from the coast (on the groud side, of course). You should move the red spot of the city location some pixels to the right.

Does anyone have an eye on this article. There was some pseudo-encyclopedic entry about how Pisa is hated by Florence, and some more vandalistic inserts. While Tuscan cities love to dislike each other, the statement as it was did neither provide any accurate information nor add any value.

Also, if those kids don't go away on their own, it may be advisable to semi-protect the article for a while... Averell (talk) 16:56, 19 May 2017 (UTC)
