Domus Mazziniana

Facade of the Domus Mazziniana, via Mazzini, Pisa
This is the house where Giuseppe Mazzini spent the last years of his life and where he died on 10 March 1872. Practically rebuilt after the damages of the Second World War, it is now a museum dedicated to his life and works: the lettering on the facade of the building represent the verbose oath of the Giovine Italia (Young Italy), written by Mazzini himself in 1831 in Marseille.

Wow, this is amazing, the oath on the wall for all to read!

This oath could also have been for our early underground movements, no?

It's a nice way to showcase it but I wonder if the façade underneath is of any interest?
