The Leaning Tower of Pisa
Famous above all for its characteristic inclination, the Leaning Tower of Pisa is, together with the Colosseum, one of the most famous Italian monuments in the world.
Located in the famous Piazza del Duomo, the Tower of Pisa is 56 meters high and owes its slope, that is about 3.97 degrees with respect to the vertical axis, a subsidence of the underlying ground that occurs during the early stages of construction.
Few people know that in 1944, the tower was saved by its beauty. The American sergeant Leon Weckstein, in fact, was so fascinated by its splendor that he did not have the courage to order an artillery attack aimed at hitting the Nazis who used it as a lookout.
