Historical-monumental building situated on the Lungarno Ranieri Simonelli, inside the perimeter of the old town of Pisa. It is part of the former convent complex of San Vito, in the premises of the Arsenali Medicei, which are a rare example of shipyard architecture, dating back to the 16th Century. The compound was rebuilt after World War II by the Ministry of Finance, that used it as Provincial Headquarters of the Finance Police of Pisa.
Detached building, formerly part of the convent complex of San Vito in Pisa, situated in the old town between the Lungarno Ranieri Simonelli and Via di San Vito. This real estate is spread over three floors above ground and is currently composed of rooms for office use on the ground and first floors (formerly used as operational area of the barracks of the Finance Police of Pisa) and three lodgings on the first and second floors, accessible from a stairwell with private access in Via San Vito n.1. The former barracks, with supporting masonry in stone and bricks, has an internal cloister and a porch, typical of eighteenth-century buildings, and is spread over two floors above ground that are accessible through three different stairwells. On the ground and first floors there are altogether 36 rooms, with toilets and lifts.
