  Asinelli and Garisenda towers
by Mundus

Italy has, without any question, a troubled relationship with towers.

During during the Middle Ages, Bologna's weathly families used to compete with eachother on the size of their towers.

At the apex of that mania there were about two hundred towers, about ten are left today.

The Asinelli and Garisenda towers are the most famous ones. The Garisenda is waaaayyyy to inclided for my comfort...
