Sant'Antonio Abate is a Romanesque-style, Roman Catholic church, located facing Piazza Sant'Antonio in Pisa, region of Tuscany, Italy

The church was founded in 1341 with an adjacent convent. It was nearly destroyed after World War Two, and was rebuilt. The inferior façade, in two colors of marble, was the design product of Lupo, Giovanni di Gante, and Simone di Matteo of Siena.

On a rear wall of the convent, facing Via Zandonai, the vast 1989 mural of Tuttomondo by Keith Haring, was one of the last public works of the graffiti artist.[1]
