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.

Exhibition in Venice: Magnum's Italy from Robert Capa to Paolo PellegrinFrom 8 October 2022 to 5 February 2023, Portogruaro (VE), Palazzo Vescovile, Via del Seminario, 19
An extraordinary roundup of over one hundred images that tell the news, history and customs of our country over the last 70 years. A project that brings, for the first time to the city, the great photographers of the photographic agency Magnum Photos, founded in New York in 1947, an international initiative that intends to promote and enhance the city of Portogruaro and the entire territory of Eastern Venice.
Authors called to tell large and small events, characters and places in Italy from the post-war period to today, in a fascinating intertwining of famous photographs and others less known, of places known all over the world and ordinary citizens, who make up the social fabric and visual of our country. The exhibition begins with two sensational series, one by Robert Capa, dedicated to the end of the Second World War, which shows a country in ruins, destroyed by five years of conflict, and one by David Seymour, who in 1947 instead captures the tourists who they return to visit the Sistine Chapel: the eternal beauty of Italian art that appears as the sign of the rebirth of an entire nation.
