On the 25th of March Pisa celebrates the New Year 2014

We are still in the early months of 2013 but by Monday, March 25 Pisa will celebrate the New Year 2014. True to the tradition of its ancient maritime republic, the city celebrated its New Year on March 25, coinciding with the day of the Annunciation and then nine months exactly before the birth of Jesus. On the website of Tourism of the Province of Pisa reads:

New Year Pisano was in force from the tenth century to 1749 and then as now the beginning of the Year Pisano is scanned and represented by a kind of sundial, a physical phenomenon as simple as spectacular and impressive: at high noon a radius of sun penetrates the Duomo from a round window of the nave and hits a marble egg on a shelf placed on the pillar next to the pulpit by Giovanni Pisano, on the opposite side.
