The ancient Roman ships, discovered in 1998 during a railway excavation work in San Rossore, returned the wrecks of thirty open sea and inland water vessels, now located in the large spaces of the Medici Arsenals. The ancient maritime history of Pisa joins the intent supported by Duke Cosimo I de ‘Medici to develop the navigation activity of Pisa and Mediterranean trade.
