Tirrenia

Tirrenia is a frazione of Pisa, Italy with a population of 3,112 inhabitants. Immersed in the pine forest of the Litorale Pisano and the Ligurian Sea (even if the name of the village refers to Tyrrhenian Sea, in Italian Mar Tirreno), Tirrenia is situated in the center of the coast of Tuscany and the Parco Naturale Migliarino, San Rossore and Massaciuccoli, between Pisa and Livorno.

In between Marina di Pisa and Calambrone, Tirrenia is an important goal of Italian seaside tourism and, more in general, European. Tirrenia is also an important tourist attraction for young people for its quantity of pubs and discos.

History

The city was founded during the years of the fascist regime. Benito Mussolini had this once swampy city transformed into what he called "The Pearl of the Mediterranean Sea." Many architects from all over Italy were called upon to build centers for orphans and houses for the rich. In the 1930s places for studying film were constructed, and la Pisorno was built, to expand the ideal of fascism in Italy and to make propaganda. Today, in the area of Tirrenia near Livorno, the old colonies built by Mussolini for orphans are now being restored since they were abandoned after World War II. These colonies are going to be used as future tourist attractions.
