"Feel the contrast of green and..." The Tower Tip by barcodex

The Tower, Pisa: 41 reviews and 41 photos


Favorite thing: Feel the contrast of green and light-grey colours.

Fondest memory: When you look at the green grass, you may wonder how it is occured, that this perfectly looking ground is so 'mild' that it is not able to keep buildings straight-standing. But it's the scientific part - this strange orientation of buildings is caused by unstable grounds. When the bell tower first started to fall, there were some attempts to stop this, and as a result of these attempt you can see that top part of the tower is not coaxial with the rest of it.
On the picture I'll try to explain this with gestures.
