Why study at Pisa ?

The tradition of Oriental and Egyptological studies at the University of Pisa is one of the oldest in Europe: the teaching of Oriental languages (Arabic, Syriac and Hebrew) dates back to 1620, provided by prestigious figures such as Ibrahim al-Haqili, Butros Mubarak and Cesare Malanima. In 1826 the world’s first chair of Egyptology was established in Pisa, held by Ippolito Rosellini, colleague and friend of Jean-François Champollion.
