This paper analyses three legislative texts dating back to 4th November 1478, 2nd January 1479 and 12th February 1479. The analysis and subsequent transcription draw on the eighteenth century edition of the University Superintendent Angelo Fabroni and focus on the complications deriving from distinct versions. The Signoria of Lorenzo de' Medici (il Magnifico) shapes the historical context. Some major decisions of Lorenzo il Magnifico affected the centuries-old history of the Pisan University, since he restored the full activities of the Universiyy and applied the statutes that were originally promulgated for the Studio Fiorentino in 1388. The resolutions adopted by the Ufficiali dello Studio on 4th November 1478 explicitly referred to the Florentine statutes. These statutes were ammended redefined some crucial positions within the University organization, such as the figure and function of the Rector. The amendments also regarded the Archbishop of Pisa, who, as the University Vice-Chancellor, had the power of conferring degrees (in accordance with the Papal Bull In supreme dignitatis that astablished the University on 4th September 1343). The new legislation remained in force until the early nineteenth century.
