Filippo Mazzei's home and memorial tablet

This tablet is in memory of Filippo Mazzei, located in Pisa (via Giordano Bruno, 39).

This is the house where he lived his last years and where he died, in fact he settled in Pisa in 1792 and he followed closely the Tuscan political events through a cordial exchange of letters with a group of young liberals protagonists of the Pisan municipality.

The municipality of Pisa decided to affix a tablet in his honor, now it is a private house.

He also was a habitual customer of the Pisan coffee house, Caffè dell'Ussero
