The Meeting Rooms named after the most illustrious citizens of Pisa: Pacinotti, Kinzica, Ugolino
The congress halls are modular with movable and adjoining walls: Sala Kinzica and Sala Ugolino, reserved individually are more poised and intimate; if combined they create a large meeting room, the Pacinotti, which can accommodate a larger number of congressmen.
Sala Pacinotti, up to 130 people, named after Antonio Pacinotti (1841- 1912), a Pisan senator of the Kingdom of Italy, a patriot, an Italian scientist, who invented the dynamo and the direct current electric engine.
Sala Kinzica, up to 70 people, bears the name of Kinzica de' Sismondi, the young daughter of a noble family. She is linked to the history of the city of Pisa because, according to legend, she saved the city from the invasion by the Saracens.
Sala Ugolino, up to 54 people, dedicated to Count Ugolino della Gherardesca. Born in 1220 in Pisa to a noble family, Ugolino was a naval commander and a politician lined up among the Ghibellines, but he sided with the Guelphs. The whole world remembers his name for the verses he inspired Dante Alighieri in the Divine Comedy. The supreme poet placed Ugolino in the IX circle of Hell where the damned are imprisoned in ice where traitors to their homeland and guests are punished. In Dante's comedy the Count is captured and locked in the Tower of the Muda with his children and grandchildren he assists as they are starved to death one after another, betrayed by Archbishop Ruggieri.
