The Leaning Tower of Pisa, built in August 1173, is a free-standing bell tower of the Cathedral of Pisa, Italy, located on the Miracle Square north of Pisa City in the province of Tuscany, Italy.
The Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy has always been a mecca for tourists.
Everyone is always happy to push this crooked tower back in various postures.
Anyone who has been to Italy wants to come here and take a picture with it.
Known as one of the seven wonders of the medieval world, the Leaning Tower of Pisa has a history of more than 800 years. For a long time, it was thought that the tower was intentionally designed to be inclined.
In fact, it was caused by uneven foundation and soft soil layer during construction. The locals used to regard it as a failed building, but did not expect the tower to become the gospel of the city.
The leaning Leaning Tower of Pisa has become the iconic building of Pisa and even Italy, and about 800,000 tourists come to Leaning Tower of Pisa every year.
But just recently, the world-famous Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy was facing a “identity crisis” because he was about to become the Pisa tower!
According to the BBC, experts from the monitoring team of the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy recently confirmed that the Leaning Tower of Pisa is gradually straightening. It is reported that in the past 20 years, the Leaning Tower of Pisa has “corrected” the 4 cm tilt.
Monitoring team expert Salvatores Settis said, “It looks like the tower is 200 years younger,” and “the good news is that the tower is constantly and slowly becoming more straight.“
what? ? How exactly did it straighten silently?
Some netizens said, “It was Superman who pushed it back!”
Other netizens said, “Obviously, all these tourists pushed it back.”
The fact is that because the land is soft and easy to sink, the International Committee for the Rescue of Leaning Tower of Pisa always fears that it will collapse one day. So I have been silently adjusting it for so many years.
In recent years, some engineers have proposed a plan for the tower to slowly and automatically return to its original position. The restored leaning tower is expected to continue to stand for another 300 years.
Although the Leaning Tower of Pisa “less inclined” means that the condition of the tower is more stable and the risk of collapse is reduced, but it may no longer tilt …
So while it hasn’t been completely “righted up”, hurry up and take a picture with the crooked one!
