Italy was constructed as the bell tower for the
city`s cathedral. However, at that time the architects weren't experienced. So, it was built soft ground and as soon as it had been built, it slowly began to lean.
Over the years many attempts were made to stop the tower from leaning. Once, people removed the stones from the bottom in order to put strong metal rods in, but the stones that were being removed were the part of the foundations so the tower leaned even more! Since then it has been reinforced to correct this.
Today , the tower can still be seen leaning to one side. It is covered in marble and it`s very beautiful. Unfortunately, however , it was closed to the public in 1990 after it was revealed that a single busload of tourists at the top could make it fall over completely! All the same it will be visited by tourists for many years to come.
