The documentation stored in the state archives of the city of Pisa, from the end of the 12th century and the beginning of the 13th century, provides essential information on the legal and linguistic framework for diplomatic relations between the authorities and merchants in the city of Pisa, which was then an independent city, and the Almohade Empire, in particular the Almohade province of Ifrīqiya, whose capital was Tunis. These original documents are only a part of all those who, Arabic or Latin, attest to the intensity of relations between medieval Latin Christianity and the southern shores of the Mediterranean. Indeed, many letters exchanged between the 12th and 15th century with the Egyptian provinces have also been kept in the Italian archives.
