The Stazione Leopolda in Pisa, is a cultural center that was created in the old railway station of the city, and it is in this exceptional historical and architectural context that events and various projects are organized, contributing to the strengthening of the social and cultural fabric. to the democratic growth of the city.
Built in 1844 by Grand Duke Leopoldo II of Tuscany, it was one of the first railway stations built in Italy. Since 1929, it originally hosted the fruit and vegetable market. When the market was moved, a large group of associations developed the project of transforming the structure into a socio-cultural center. In 1996, the Municipality of Pisa adopted the project and started restoration work using European funds. The associations took over the management of the structure, converging towards the same goal: the Association Casa della Città Leopolda.
Open since 2002, the station now includes a historic lobby, a convention hall, a rehearsal room for theater and dance, a games room, a local produce store, a student residence and an indoor plaza.
The facility hosts a variety of activities ranging from nationally significant events to intense programs of conferences, shows, workshops, meetings and recreational activities that enliven the structure on a daily basis.
