  • Cannot go unnoticed with its pronounced slope due to the slow sinking caused by the fact that they stand above the old bed of a river. It was built in the 12th century along with other towers, but is the only one that remains. It is 39 metres high.

  • We had heard about a saying quite fashionable among the Ravenna Ravenna "whose meaning for" Mariola would be: "find something close, but failed to find it" and because the origin of this motto seems to derive from two curious stone fragments depicting a woman's head, perhaps, with a rider that turns its back, placed in a niche at the base of the Tower , we headed to this structure to satisfy our curiosity but unfortunately we found the base "wrapped" by a wooden structure. At this tower, originally of about 40 meters tall, brick and square, flowed once the urban section of a river, likely because of its slow and gradual steep even by the vibrations caused by the sound of bells. Therefore, after you apply a structure external reinforcement, proceeded even to the demolition of the upper section of the tower which appears now to a height of about two-thirds of the original. Finally ... a real disappointment!

  • The Tower, which dates from the 12th century, it is walking distance from Piazza del Popolo and presents a unique slope, due to a failure of the surrounding terrain. Are visible only outside.
