Sheathed in white marble, this inadvertently eye-catching belfry for the nearby cathedral was originally intended to flaunt the city of Pisa’s wealth. Construction on the Tower began over 800 years ago, in 1173. Unfortunately, the bell tower was built on silty Tuscan soil and had already begun to lean only five years into the project. This may explain why, despite how many craftsmen and stonemasons worked on the Tower, few recorded their names in conjunction with this projectI Elegantly decorated in opal laquers and accented with glitters and crystals.
