Russian Пистоя

Писто́я (иногда встречается Писто́йя, итал. Pistoia) — город, административный центр одноимённой провинции в итальянской области (регионе) Тоскана. Население — 90 118 чел. (по данным переписи населения от 31 марта 2018 года).

Этот древнеримский и средневековый город (первое упоминание о котором датируется II веком до н. э. и принадлежит Плавту) был основан во времена римской эпохи на территории, где до этого располагалось этрусское поселение. Изначально эта укрепленная цитадель находилась на Кассиевой дороге (Via Cassia), соединяющей Рим с Луккой и Флоренцией, и была предназначена для снабжения провизией римской милиции. Вероятнее всего, именно благодаря этому факту город получил свое имя Пистория (Pistoria, Pistoriae, Pistorium), от латинского слова pistoria, которое означает печь для выпечки хлеба.

Однако не исключается возможность, что название имеет ещё более глубокие, этрусские корни «Pist» и «Oros», что означает «Дверь» и «Гора», а по причине созвучности, названию было ошибочно приписано латинское происхождение, от pistoria (печь для выпечки хлеба), pistŏr (пекарь), во времена Римской Империи.

Более позднюю версию появления города предложил Джованни Виллани (нотариус, магистрат и флорентийский историк, ярый приверженец гвельфов и ожесточенный противник гибеллинской Пистои), связав злую легенду о возникновении города с фактом поражения Катилины (Заговор Катилины) в 62 году до н.э.: "немногочисленные выжившие обосновались здесь в жалких условиях залечивать свои раны, а затем основали город и окрестили его Пистоя" (происходит от pestilenza /арх. pistolenza o pistolenzia - эпидемия чумы или других инфекционных заболеваний, мор, смрад), тем самым дав начало мрачной репутации города, которую использовал даже Данте в своей "Божественной комедии", высказавшись о Пистое как о "достойном логове" для такого злодея как Ванни Фуччи. Покровителем города считается Иаков Зеведеев (San Jacopo). Праздник города 25 июля — Festa di San Jacopo.

Places located in Pistoia

Fortezza Santa Barbara (Pistoia)

The Fortress of Santa Barbara (Fortezza di Santa Barbara) is a 14th-century urban castle erected to house troops guarding the town of Pistoia, in the region of Tuscany, Italy. While it is suggested that initially the fortress was named after a nearby church of Saint Barnabas, however, Saint Barbara is the patron saint of artillerymen.

The initial fortress was erected in 1331, after the Florentine Republic had defeated the forces of Castruccio Castracani, and reconsolidated their power over Pistoia. In 1531, under the designs of Nanni Unghero, the fortress was enlarged, but subsequently during the rule of the Grand Duke Cosimo I de' Medici the fortress was further enhanced, initially by Giovanni Battista Belluci, and subsequently by construction of a perimeter wall under the design of Bernardo Buontalenti. Similar fortress buildings by the Medici ruler took place throughout Tuscany, including the similarly named Fortezza di Santa Barbara in Siena in 1561–63. Unghero's fortress had been a simple moated quadrilateral, but Buontalenti linked the structure to the city wall. The fortress was only besieged in 1643, when the armies of the Pope Urban VIII Barberini unsuccessfully attacked the city.

In the late 18th-century, Grand Duke Pietro Leopoldo I, relieved the fortress of its role in the city defences, changing the main functions to work as barracks. In subsequent decades it also served as a jail. In 1970, much-needed restoration work was begun. The fortress chapel has some Baroque era frescoes. Presently surrounding land serves as parkland and the ramparts have views of town and surrounding territory.

This family arranged in 1844 to have church reconsecrated. The oratory's counterfacade contains a massive fresco by Vini depicting the Crucifixion of St Desiderio.

Church of Sant' Andrea

Sant'Andrea (Pieve di Sant'Andrea) is a church in Pistoia, Tuscany, central Italy that served as a pieve or place that congregations from surrounding village churches use for baptism. It is dedicated to St. Andrew the Apostle, and includes the famous Pulpit of Sant' Andrea by Giovanni Pisano. The church probably dates from as early as the 8th century, though in a smaller size. In the 12th century it was extended in length.

The façade shows the typical bichrome marble decoration of the Pistoiese Romanesque style, executed in the mid-12th century by Gruamonte and his brother Adeodatus, who was also responsible for the sculptures and for the portal's architrave. The latter depicts the "Journey of the Magi", a rare theme whose use here derives from the fact that the church was located on the Via Francigena, by which, in the Middle Ages, the pilgrims reached Rome from France. The decorated capitals are by a Master Henry, while the small statue of St. Andrew in the lunette over the portal is reminiscent of Giovanni Pisano's style.

In the late 15th century the upper façade was finished and the central nave was vaulted. The frescoes in the apse date to 1506, executed by Bernardino del Signoraccio. Today only the central part, with the Father supported by Four Angels, survives. The altars in the aisles were added in the 17th century, with paintings by artists such as Cristofano Allori, Alessio Gimignani, and Girolamo Scaglia.
