Dangling bell tower
30 April, 2007
In Venice there are many dangling bell tower or campanili (as the Pisa tower). The most dangling is probably the Santo Stefano Church bell tower, it was started in the XV Century and finished in 1544. Its silhouette is part of the Venice Skyline, but now it needs some care.
It seems that the lean is growing and spinning, unfortunately the clay under the tower is not very resistant but luckily the wood poles (yes, Venice is really on wood poles!) are in good conditions.
