After 14 years of war, Pisa surrenders in the year 1509. The painting represents the return to Florence of its victorious army: “following the Roman traditions, I have featured the chariot and the army preceding the prisoners, above which we find triumphant Florence pulled by four white horses and crowned with towers...and the florentine people celebrating the victory”.
